Sometimes the bolts come loose on the door to frame. Tighten them up after you get it properly aligned.

Timing belt re-install and engine hard stops when rotating by hand even when timing marks lined up.

That hard stop is the valves hitting the head of the piston, you most likely have bent a valve, you have the valve timing wrong.

Why doesn't door close?

Check the large stud or pin that is in the door frame, this is called the NADER pin, it may be out of line with the latch. The latch may be sprung also.

Why does my door open door sounds when turning right ?

Your door might be slightly loose so the sensor feeling if the door is open is triggered when the g-forces of your car going right pushes the left door out. (I guess it's the driver's door that creates this problem) try to look at the sensor, it should be on the door-frame somewhere. see if it is loose or has any other problems.

When setting timing after broken timing belt, how do you know when # 1 is at TDC with both intake and exhaust valves closed? What is TDC?

TDC is an acronym for Top Dead Center. It is when the piston has reached the very top of its travel and there is nowhere for the piston to go but down. If you align the timing marks on the engine, the piston will be at TDC with the valves on #1 closed.

To position your crankshaft and cam to the correct position, it should be done BEFORE removing the belt if possible. If the belt has already been removed and/or the belt was broken, the same principles apply, but you will have to go about it completely different.

Turn the engine clockwise to align the "O" on the crankshaft pulley with the "O" on the outer timing belt cover.
Remove the plug in the outer timing belt cover and look through the hole. The timing marks on the camshaft pulley should align with the cover pointer. If they do not align, rotate the crankshaft one full revolution and align the "Os" again. They should now align. When every thing is lined up like this, your engine is timed to #1 at TDC and the valves on #1 cylinder will be closed.

Now if the belt has already been removed or if the belt was broken, You may have to temporarily put the outer cover back on. You may have to put it on and take it off several times until you get things lined up. Time the crankshaft "Os" first. It will not matter which rotation you are on if the belt is not installed. (TDC is TDC - the piston doesn't really care where the valves are - that's the camshaft's problem LOL)
After the crank shaft is lined up, turn the camshaft so the timing marks line up with the pointer. Then remove the front cover and install your belt.

After setting the timing belt tensioner, rotate the engine two full turns clockwise and recheck to make sure that all the timing marks still line up. If they do not - repeat the procedure.

How to remove rear brake drum

Follow the instruction

Chock the front wheels and put your safety glasses on.

Loosen the rear lug nuts with the lug wrench. Jack the rear end off the ground with the floor jack and place the jack stands under the rear frame. Lower the rear end onto the jack stands.

Remove the lug nuts and wheel by hand. Put the catch pan under the brake drum and spray brake clean inside the brake drum from the rear until the drippings are clear.

Loosen the brake shoe adjuster as far as possible with the brake shoe adjuster tool, which you can pick up at your local auto parts store.

Hit the face of the brake drum with the dead blow hammer just above the center of the drum's face. Rotate the drum a quarter turn and hit it again, just above the center of the drum's face. Repeat this twice more and then try to pull the drum off. If the drum does not come off, continue to hit it, rotate it and hit it again until you can pull the drum off the hub.

Driver side door has play, hitting catch

Most car doors are adjustable to some degree.
I assume from your description that the latch is misaligned so the stationary part is too high.
That part is normally slightly adjustable.
If you loosen the screws holding it to the door frame, you'll find that it can be shifted in all compass directions.

Frankly, Ford had a commercial years ago showing a production line behind the speaker that stuck forever in memory.
I recall that it was a Mustang of the era and the worker had a 2X4 under the lip of the door postioned at about 45 degrees, with the other end resting on the lower door frame and he was prying up and trying the door as he worked.
It looked pretty primitive and not something I would have let the outside world see.

If, after you can adjust the stationary latch so the door closes properly, check the alignment of the door when closed.
If it is too far out of alignment, you might try the hinges to see if they too have some range of adjustment.
If it is not well-centered in the opening, you may have seals that aren't tight any more.

Supposedly, modern vehicles are so precisely built that such slop shouldn't be necessary.
Maybe it isn't . . . on Toyotas.
