In most cases refrigerants Can only be purchased by a certified technician. If your unit needs (gas) it has a leak which must be found and repaired. Refrigerating systems are a sealed system and if they require recharging there is a leak in the sealed system.

When removing a ceiling cassette type air conditioner do i need to remove the gas before removing the ceiling unit

If your removing any type of Ac system, you will want to remove the gas. Some units have a pump down feature as in central units, but i have not seen to many on mini's as most of them use variable speed technology, thus no valves to close properly, just depends on the type of unit you have with what will need to be done..

I wanna knw dat after how many months should split ac gas be topup? I also wanna knw dat what is d cost of split ac gas?

If the unit was charged correctly in the beginning and you have no leaks in the system - the refrigerant will reman good for the entire life of the AC and it's component parts. In other words, without a leak, the refrigerant will not wear out - or ever need replacing - and you will never need to add any.
Right now the average 'wholesale' cost of AC refrigerant (for residential units) is about $6 per pound.
Retail cost will vary depending on the service company providing the refrigerant - but you can figure somewhere around $12 - $15 per pound. The retail cost includes the tech putting it in for you and making sure the AC unit is correctly charged and that the reason for the need to add refrigerant has been fixed, i.e. a leak that had to be repaired.
hope this helps.

What gas should I add to the portable air conditioning unit ?

First of all, you don't add "gas" to any AC unit. You add "refrigerant" i.e. freon because AC units (as is ALL cooling) devices run a refrigerant cycle. If you have to ask this question, you shouldn't be adding refrigerant to the AC. Seriously, there are EPA regulations that make it illegal for anyone to knowingly release refrigerant into the atmosphere, and you might be a good candidate for doing so. The fine is something like $200,000 per day per incident. But if you are adamant on doing so, you'll need some expensive tools to evacuate the refrigerant that's currently in the unit and replace it with something like R-134a. The AC should have documentation (if not written on the unit) on what type of refrigerant is is currently using. If you have to "add" refrigerant to it, that may mean that it is leaking; if it's leaking, you'll need to find and fix the leak first, or you'll be violating EPA regulations.
