Would the inline feul pump in the feul tank cause the motor to run to rich .if you put your foot down the power drops out .vy commodore station wagon.done 320000 kms.

No what you are describing is lack of air through the intake.
Rich means lack of air or too much fuel. Fuel pressure remains constant and drops when the accelerator is pressed down if the pump is bad, the fuel filter is plugged or there is an injector problem or a fuel pressure regulator issue (if one is present) and this results in lean running engines.

I have a 98 cavalier keep getting the p0171 code and its running really really rich u can smell the gas in the exhaust ive replace tps sensor feul injectors, feul regulator, coolant temp sensor, both o2...

Usually it's the O2 sensor, but the fuel regulator could be stuck in the high output setting for heavy demand. Or the computer could be acting up. if you can, take it to the dealership, and have them test the computer, and the fuel regulator.

Open the hood and smell gas fumes. shops says it is the feul sending unit

The fuel sending unit is the basically the gas gauge.

I would check charcoal evap canister to see if it is full, check vacuum lines. If car runs rich, then have 02 sensors replaced. You can also get a multi-tester and test fuel pressure regulator to make sure it is operating properly, if car runs good, skip this step and check gas lines, and fume lines.

My chevrolet impala catalyst system below threshold bank 1, how can i fix this problem? How much will repairs cost to fix problem? My car will not pass state inspection unless this is fixed.

get a tune up replace plugs and maybe wires. it is not burning the fuel enough which is causing the feul to be rich or lean. try this first.
if car is running rough might be catalac converter. thats where it get expensive.
