If by locked, you mean "seized", the compressor is shot. if you can live without AC, and the pully portion still rolls, you can leave it. if you need the AC, you're in for some expensive servicing.

Why my 2001 Ford explores sport trac keeps burning down the ac compressor ?

It really depends on what is failing. If the compressor is locking up internally, it may be caused by debris in the ac system, or the compressor may not be installed correctly.
Too much or too little freon, too much or too little oil, and so on.

I have a 2002 buick rendezvous and the air compressor has locked up and broke the serpentine belt. Is it possible to re-route the belt to bypass the air compressor or buy a smaller belt? Any other options...

If you have the ac turned off the clutch on the front of the compressor should disengage. Then the ac pulley will spin freely and you can drive until you save up for a new compressor. You may want to save up they are about 3 to 400 bucks plus installation which is about 300.

I just spoke to ford(cause I have the same exact problem), and they told me it's sounds as if the door power lock acuator is going bad. You can buy the part for around $110(plus tax) at autozone, and have someone replace the defective one. Or, go to a ford dealership and they will replace it for some where around $249 hope this helps.
