U will need to pull the door trim panels off and reattach the windows to the lifting channel they sit in, it will take all day if 4 doors are involved, about 2 hours per door.

Heard loud bang and now the front driver side door window does not roll up. I can hear the motor working, but the window still does not roll up. One week later the exact same thing happened to the front...

Possible that the mechanism has jumped off the linkage . You will need to remove the flap and get access to the window winding mechanism. You will be able to notice the main motor mechanism which has either jumped off - as you heard the sound- or there is a gear that has come off the motor drive.
A resetting of the winder to keep the motor drive coupled to the window winding mechanism should solve. Also make sure that the glass channels are clear and free , not giving friction to the mechanism to jump off.

Rear passenger side window went down won't go back up. I heard a pop when I put it down. Also now I can move it up and down by hand.

More than likely, the window regulator is bad. If you hear the motor "trying" to move, the regulator is bound up, or broken.

While trying to roll down the passenger side electric window, a loud popping sound was heard and the window dropped. The electric motor was still functioning but I think the supports for the window fell...

Depends on your skills of course. Take your time and do it safely but you likely can do it..
You will need a complete window regulator assembly. There is an electric motor that drives a cable around pulleys. The cables snap or burr and jam up.
Aftermarket suppliers now can get these as they are a common problem. Dorman manufacturing has them and they seem to be good quality. In Canada around $150 bucks.

Window not working, can hear motor, can manually move window up & down, heard something drop inside door now window rattles

For some reason your window has fallen off the track that it rides on as it goes up and down. You will have to remove the inner door panel and replace it on the track or guides. This is close work and you will be exposed to sharp edges of the door.
