Your terminology is a bit off. The five speed gear cluster is called a freewheel, and you need a freewheel removal tool and benchvice to get it off, and yes it threads on to the hub. Refer to:

How to Change a Rear Cassette?

you need a chain whip tool and cassette locking tool, the chain whip wraps around one of the cassette to hold it still, the locking tool fits onto a wrench or ratchet and you insert inside the center of the freehub, so with one hand hold the cassette still and the other hand loosen the lock ring and unscrew, the cassete then comes of the freehub.

I changed the rear hub to a powertap now the Cassette is jamming when torquing the axle

First thing, count how many cogs you have, and then make sure the PowerTap hub cassette body (what the cassette slides onto) is made for that cassette. Some older hubs have cassette bodies made for fewer cogs. If it is the proper body for your cassette, make sure there isn't a spacer that is too thick underneath the cogset.
What is probably happening is that the cassette is out further than the outermost locknut on the axle and it's just coming against the frame as you torque the QR down.

Ow do the cassettes conect to the back wheel screw on or push ?

Cassettes fit on a spline with a lock nut to keep them there, the spline is also the ratchet.
Older bikes had a ratchet/sprocket assembly which screwed onto a threaded hub

Removing front hub assembly

I've never heard a hub make a rattle noise. A bad hub bearing will usually make a roaring or whining noise at speed and/or it will have play in it. When is the rattle noise made, over bumps, at a slow speed, at high speeds?

VCR not working for some cassettes

What do you mean by "not able to play my VCR with some cassettes. " Is it that some tapes do not display images? No Video? From your name it seems that you are from India, Assuming that to be so, I also presume that you must be possesing a Multi-System VCR, to play back PAL Tapes from India, and NTSC tapes from the US. And if that is the case, I guess it is a simple problem of resetting the System standards. Please go to the Main menu of your VCR using the Remote, and select AUTO in System (You will be given choices of AUTO, PAL, NTSC 3.58, NTSC 4.43 and NTSC PB PAL. Likewise, it is entirely possible that your Television SYSTEm Standard has been accidentally changed. If it is Multi System TV, Then, again, using the Remote of the TV, select Menu, and then select AUTO in System. In all likelihood your problem should get solved.
