Blowing 15A fuses on my 2000 firebird v6, fuse is the #7 and controls the dash and dash running lights also shuts down my radio as well.

First place i would look would be the radio, especially if it's an aftermarket installation. You will have to pull it out and look for loose broken or bare wires.

Is there such a car as a 2000 firebird/formula V6 4 speed automatic

The formula was just a body option. It has nothing to do with the performance of the car or what drive train is in it.
So the short answer to your question is YES.

My 91 3.1L V6 pontiac firebird is driving a bit rough. first of all sometimes when you start to accelerate the engine POPS loud. sometimes just once but other times alot more often. and it sounds very...

Looks like you're engine's skipping and it could use a good tune-up, spark plug and wires, distributer cap and rotor, air and fuel filters and you should be in bisness.

Motor suddenly goes off while driving

more likely it is a fault with the ignition, possible crank sensor or defective ignition module. Have u tested it for trouble codes? if not go to Kragen auto or Autozone they do the test for free.
