2004 Chrysler Sebring has been sitting since March amd now the rear drivers side tire is locked up

Rusted brakes. Sometimes, you can hit the wheel/drum with a hammer and get it to break loose. You NEED to replace the brakes! Possibly the drum also

I have to continuously replace calipers on my jeep, what is the problem?

wonder if the rotors are too slim. If this happens the brakes get too hot as the rotor radiates away the heat. If too hot the brakes could wear out faster.

An odor (not electrical in nature) coming from the driver's side tire area of the front of the car, steam was seen multiple times, something is getting real hot and has a hot smell to it

Sounds like you have a brake caliper draging. this will ruin the rotor and brake pads. Have it checked ASAP as it's also dangerous = the brake on that whell may fail.

The brakes are sticking on the drivers side of my 04 chevy can i unstick the brake?

since your complain is on the driver side sticking brake, so i do not suspect that the failure in on your hydrovac, it could be the that your driver side brake caliper piston needs seal kit replacement thats why when you press the brake and when you depress it the piston doesnt retracts. you need to remove the driver side wheel and remove the brake caliper assembly, take off the brake pads, press the brake till the piston comes out, inspect the piston condition and change it if damage along with the seal kit. make sure to bleed the brake before driving the car to release presence of air in your brake system.

sounds like your piston for your caliper is shot. leaking around seal onto brake pad and or ground. remove passenger tire look behind disc that is the one that will be glazed. look for wet around metal should be dry if looks like it was recently sprayed with some kinda oil its leaking. you need to replace caliper.
