My 2006 sonata therm gauge seems to get hot and cold with air conditioner turned up or down.Fluids seem to be ok, no leaks.

Make sure the radiator fans come on when the AC is running. They MUST be running when the AC is on because the controls apply power directly and do not use the temperature sensor to start and stop the fans.

Temp gage is solid red, air conditioner is now blowing hot air. Filled coolant reservoir and it emptied while driving but mechanic found no leak with pressure test. Is this a thermostat issue?

I doubt it.
A faulty thermostat would cause the engine to overheat after a few miles of driving. A faulty cooling fan could cause the engine to overheat and also keep the ac from working.
A leaking head gasket could cause overheating, and loss of coolant, but would not affect the ac.

2004 chevy aveo when i turn ac on it runs hot and when i turn ac off it cools down

The AC puts allot of heat load on the engine so of course it will run hotter but not overheat the engine, if that happens you may have a clogged radiator.

Air conditioner smell

Every single grand am I have owned does this!! They seem to have a gas smell when running the ac, or if it is extremely hot outside..It was the coil pack on 2 of mine. The extra load of the ac..the other was it makes the car run hotter. I just rigged my radiator fan to run constantly and the smell went away.
