I hear a bang when i take my foot off gas coming to atop and also hear a bang when i give it gas this happens like 75%of the time

problem most likely not in the diff but in the diff mounting and suspension points
a noise on acceleration or deceleration indicates that the diff housing is free to react to the load being applied and that is mounting bushes , broken mounting plates or other suspension problems
consider this to see if it fits
when you accelerate the reaction of the diff is to roll upwards as the wheels have traction but when under brakes ( deceleration ) the diff rolls forward
hence the bangs in both directions
suggest that you change mechanics and take it to a specialist shop that deals in your make of vehicle for a proper under body inspection of mounts , rubbers, pins and chassis mounting points
another issue her and that si the engine reacts the same way so check engine mounts and reaction rod bushes

It sounds like it is coming from the passsenger front wheel : bump bump bump going down the road and sometimes as if the front brake is coming lose ( not the case) 2005 4x4 ford escape is it possible just...

This sounds to me like a broken strut more than anything. As far as i know you can not remove the front differental, because this is the main drive. The rear wheels are only drivin while in four wheel drive. I would sugest to take your car to a mechanic shop and have them "shake down the front end" for any loose parts. A ball joint can also cause a noise as well as a strut mount or strut.

sounds like the differental fluid is low, find the filler plug on the rear end and take the plug out, stick your pinky finger in this hole and see if you get fluid on your fingertip, if not add 85W gear oil in the filler hole until the fluid just does start to run out

What causes clunck/poping noise when turning wheel? new ball joint, strut mount and sway-bar links all tight.

usually it is a ball joint or tie rod or cv shaft. Those are the three main culprits

It makes a loud noise when i shift the gear lever

If it's a loud "CLUNCK!" Then you likely have a bad u-joint in your driveline. If that's the case it is usually a relativley inexpensive fix, but be warned!!! If this part fails completely, your drivshaft could come apart and cause extreme amounts of damage, possibly resulting in a crash or fatality!!! It could be dangerous so get it looked at ASAP!

This type of noise is very hard to diag from a key board, but this sounds like a bad universal joint, another noise like this is a broken tooth on the ring or pinion gear in the differental, once it is up on a rack a tech will quickly isolate it.
