How do I remove the ignition housing with the steering wheel locked?

You will need the key to unlock the steering so that you can remove the ignition housing. This is done as an anti theft measure. The only other way is to get a locksmith to unlock it for you, or break it.

Steering wheel locked

It locks with the key turned off, if it wont unlock with the key on, wiggle the steering wheel hard if need be bask and forth and it may break loose ? sounds like it is getting worn on the lock system inside the steering column may need to replace the switch.

Steering wheel locked up

Just a question that might help.
Are the wheels straight or turned at a hard angle? If the wheels are angled turn the steering wheel in the same direction and then try to turn the key with pressure still on the steering wheel.You have to take the pressure off the stop to have the key cylinder turn.
If the wheels are straight have you tried a different key?

Steering wheel is locked cant find pin to unlock it

Its going to be inside the steering column near the ignition switch. When you turn the ignition it unlocks the steering lock. You can't really manually unlock it unless you break the lock system

2000 Dodge Durango SLT 4x4 leans to the right, 4 inch difference in height & steering wheel shakes relly bad even when drving slow. What do I do?

4 inches???? check if a spring or suspension component is broken, and maybe a bad tire if the steering wheel wobbles.

Can I tighten the stearing wheel for drving? Driving is loose and the stearing wheel is 1/4 turn loose. it had airbag.

You may find it's not the steering wheel, but the steering rod end ball joint(s) are worn. Being such an important part I would recomend visitind a garage too get them checked, and it's not that expensive to get them changed (£45-$60 or so) about 1 hours work at the most.

What belt if breaks can cause the steering wheel to lock, and how complicated is to fix

That would be your power stearing belt. And it can be fairly difficult because all the belt and pulley are very close to the passanger side finder well.
