I would say you probably need new rear shocks as they take out the spring oscilations.

Most cars around that year called for about 35 pounds of pressure. The tire pressure is on the tires. small print. Really depends on load and ratings.

Driving Jeep about 45mph-50mph, Right Wheel starts to bounce and pull to right very hard, can only apply brakes and pull off to shoulder, and then I can drive again until it starts bouncing once again....

Sounds like a variation of what's known as "death wobble" You need to have everything in the front end checked over carefully for signs of wear. That includes shocks and steering damper (sideways shock on steering linkage) replacing damper will cover up the problem but usually will not cure it, so if you replace it be aware that the problem will usually be back in a week. Most times it is traced to a bad track bar end or mount that has elongated at the differential, or bad ball joints. However,If you have recently had the tires removed for any reason, I would loosen the lugs and re-tighten them in a star pattern, using a torque wrench. I'm pretty sure the setting is 70 lbs, but check that #. don't forget though...I said check everything (including mount for steering box.)

In the last few days my bmw saloon 320i on an M reg has started kinda jumping on the back end... I hit a manhole and the back end moves off it plus going round corners has become a challenge, it seams...

As for the suspension, if you've carried a lot of weight back there, you've probably damaged or ruined the struts. With them damaged, the springs are doing everything. Struts/shocks are there to dampen and control the rebound and compression of the springs, and if they're blown, the back end can bounce around. When you hit a bump, with no struts to control the oscillation, the springs will trampoline the car's back end around. Get the struts inspected and replaced if need be.
