In order to fix this takes years of experience as a body repair person, and the paint matching and paint application is just out of the realm of the do it yourself-er, I suggest u ask around for friends who know body repair persons that work on the side at a greatly reduced rate over what a shop charges, the damage u described is well over $2000. labor and material to repair. I have been in the business for 35 years and absolutely know what i am saying here is correct. U could purchase a book on body and paint work, but the equipment needed to do the work would come close to the price of having a shop do it, so that is really not a good option either.

How to remove the passenger side door panel?

It depends on where the screws that hold the front or rear door panels on are hidden. On my 1998 Buick Park Ave for instance, all the door panels have two screws that are hidden by a 3/4" wide x 5" long thin plastic removable piece that is located where you put your hand to grab the door to shut it; there is also a screw behind a courtesy light that is on the lower right bottom of the panel that can be preyed out with the end of a flat-end screw driver. Go to Google and ask your question.

My passenger side rear panel is caved in dented

Depending on how bad the dent is you may not even have to take anything apart. I had a buddy that swore he got a dent out of his door by using a vacuum pump that had a special suction attachment. You may be able to use a sturdy plunger, but if the dent has any sharp bends/corners you may need to take it into a body show. They could probably fix any paint chipping or scrapes too. <a href='' ></a>

No way to tell without looking at it and taking measurements.
It may be cheaper to replace the doors than to spend the time on repairs.

Rear passenger side got dent how do i replace it

You are not very clear on exactly where the dent is. The area behind the side door is called a "quarter panel". These parts are not easily replaced, as they are a welded, structural member of the car's structure. Replacement requires specialized cutting and welding tools, normally only found in auto body shops. If the dent is not to bad, you could try removing the interior plastic trim panels and pushing outward to remove the dent.
Providing that the paint is not damaged and there is not an actual crease in the quarter panel [commonly referred to as a "pop" dent] I would suggest contacting a DENT WIZARD company. They will come to your house and fix the dent, using specialized tools and skills. Do a Google search for PAINTLESS DENT REPAIR including your geographic location in the search to find local companies who can do this work. It's much cheaper than taking the vehicle to an auto body shop.

A dent in the lower passenger front exterior door of a ford e 250 van? i'm looking for a way to make it look a bit better not perfect..

If the dent is not really small or on an edge you can sometimes use a good sink plunger or autobody suction cup to pull them out.

For small dents you can heat it with a heat gun being careful not to burn the paint, then using gloves or tongs apply a bit of dry ice to the center rubbing it in a circle from the center outward.

1994 Mercury Topaz Fender Removal

Harbor Freight and most local body shop supply stores should have a suction-cup type tool for pulling out dents. You maybe able to remove the inner fender well to get to the dent. To remove the fender, you'll need to remove the top fender bolts, the bolts that attach it to the header panel, and the bolts holding it on back by the door.
