1998 kia sportage 4WD engine turns but wont turn over (dosent even try) it just makes a winding sound and leaking coolant around harmonic balancer?

Sounds like your water pump leaking and a broken timing belt. The water pump runs off the timing belt, and sounds like your water pump took out the belt. The winding noise you hear sounds like the engine crank turning but not the cam shaft, broken belt, no compression. Have someone watch the harmonic while you try to start it. If it's turning, that's your problem.

Broken water pump bolts

You need to take off trans mounts also either that or dissconnect trans, I'd go with the first option and either jack it up or use a cherry picker to raise it. I suppose you could lower with a jack or picker also if distance is less.

Water coming out as quick as i can put it in, appears to be coming from back of water pump

Probably a broken heater hose or water pump by-pass hose or a cracked water pump housing. It would be helpful to know what engine we are talking about. YEAR, MODEL, ENGINE SIZE

One of the pulleys that the serpentine belt goes over has broken off. I think it may be the water pump but not sure. belt is loose. can I bypass that and use a smaller belt or is some sort of repair...

You should fix the broken pulley especially if it is the water pump. If it is in fact the water pump and you bypass it, your engine will overheat and you could cause serioius damage up to needing a replacement engine.

Car died, water runs out side of car below timing belt, belt doesn't appear to be broken

Ouch sounds like your water pump is broken. That can be really a bad thing. The belt doesn't have to be broken for the water pump to be ruined. Check your oil... as long as your oil isn't milky looking meaning your car overheated and ruined the heads or seals then you should be okay at getting the water pump (and timing belt as they go hand in hand) replaced.

My 94 mazda 626 lx dumped radiator fluid on the ground i believe that its the water pump but dont know where it is or how to change it

Broken water-pump don't dump water when they are bad. They leak bit-by-bit through their bleed holes. You may have a broken hose. You may test the leaking again with plain water, and while the engine is running open the hood and see where the leak is coming from.
If your water-pump is out, you will have to replace it togethet with the timing-belt. And it would be best to get the Haneys repair manual which is more detailed for this job. The water-pump is bolted to the engine side, protected by black plastic covers.

Hose from water pump to intake manifold above and behind water pu

this is a water pump bypass hose connector to the manifold, take the broken piece to a parts store and show it to them, it should have the threads still broken off in the manifold so explain that. To remove the broken piece ask for a EZ OUT to fit the piece you took to the store.
It is common for these to become brittle and break off but it is a simple fix.
