Drive could be bad, be sure it has enough Hydaulic oil and the pulley is turnung the drive. This is a common problem with Zero turns, Hydrostatic drives going bad.

I would check the linkage to see if it needs adjusting. You have two hydrostatic drives which need to be in sync for mower to go straight

Why do I have to push so ******* the handle to make it go forward?

If this is a self powered mower, you probably need to make an adjustment. (All self-powered mowers need an occasional adjustment). Check your owners manual for the procedure on your mower, they vary by brand and model).

Mx5050 toro zero turn mower, one drive arm more dominant than the other. With both arms all the way forward the mower slightly turns to the left. Any adjustments to correct this issue?

1st with mover off verify that both handles move same amount forward , I use a string to measure them , they both have mechanical stops that do bend and move sometimes
second locate control body valve , (thing that handles connect too) there should be a pump pressure adjust (allen key) on the side of this your gonna need to make small adjustments and try it , is difficult to do if you don't have a lift to elevate wheels of mower (but is possible without ) but takes patience

Zero turn will not move forward reverse or turn

These units use Hydraulic pumps for motivation. If the unit stopped all at one time, I suspect a drive belt came off.
For both pumps to fail at the same time would be very odd. Check the v-belt driving the wheel pumps.

I have a cub cadet zero turn I was cutting the grass all of a sudden it stop going it wont go forward or in reverse. I checked the hydraulic fluid it normal the engine and blades working fine any...

On the flange in front of the rear tire are the pull handles for disengaging the hydrostat motors. If the are pulled forward and dropped in lock position, you'll have no movement either direction. That's the only thing that will stop motion of these units. They're on both sides, in front of the rear tires, up close to the frame and are just small hard wires bent down to get hold of and pull out and drop down in lock to disengage. Push them up from lock position and push them in. I cant understand how they would have just come out while mowing, never happened to me. You pull the tabs out and lock only to move the unit when not running.

My swisher25hp-60 in.cut barely moves going forward

Was it working correctly earlier or is this your initial operation?

According to the product manual for "loss of drive":
1. Bypass linkages in the bypass position
2. Hydro belt worn, damaged, or broken
3. Idler spring loose or broken

1. Make sure that the bypass linkages are in
the drive or engaged position. Located at
the rear of the machine. Refer to decal on
the rear of the unit.
2. Replace Hydro belt.
3. Replace Idler spring
