If you are referring to the front of the car there is a splash pan, designed to keep road spray out of the engine compartment.
and sometimes service people think it was engineered
with two many screws,or they vibrated out.
just replace screws.

if this is not the front of the car please re-post question with more information
hope this helped

Two metal pieces are hanging down from the undercarriage

Sounds almost like a motor mount. Have you had recent engine work? Get this checked. If the part is not near the engine, it still sounds like you need to get it looked at.

Any garage will fix it for a fee. What made it fall down? It's out of warranty.Warranty

I have rusted metal of the undercarriage of a 2002 ford escape xlt on the side where the gas tank is located, this metal started to hang down, and a piece of metal came this safe to drive, until...

Yes it should be OK. Just as long as none if it is touching it rubbing the lines or tank if it is you need to remove the piece that is. This will be ok till you get it into a body shop to fix the problem. Also if the tank is loose dont drive it because the tank might fall out but it is rare but it does happen..

Metal piece hanging in middle of undercarriage just behind wheels

It's likely the heat shield for the catalytic converter. There's really no repair for it. Mechanics won't usually spot weld it and they can't remove it. Apart from a little rattle now and then, there's really nothing to worry about.

Damage undercarriage-cannot access the oil filter for changing

If the part is bolted, you should be able to unbolt it if you have access to all the bolts , if not, you can rent or buy a come-along and bend the sheet metal back far enough to gain access to the oil filter. Sounds like you have your work cut out for you either way!
