2004 Chevy Tahoe: I changed A/C blend door actuator on passenger side and it's still blowing heat on my driver side?

Does the vehicle have dual zone climate control, where the driver side and passenger side have different control? Sounds like a blend door issue on the driver side. Why did you replace the passenger side, was it blowing hot too when AC was on?

Do I need to evacuate the ac compressor lines if replacing w/ bypass pulley

If you are bypassing the compressor then you dont need to do anything to the system. If it has a leak, it would be more responsible to get the refrigerant recovered instead of just letting it leak out.

No power to clutch on my ac compressor

Could be several problems. Depending on what vehicle you have you may have high and low pressure switches. If the freon is low, the low pressure will not let the compressor engage. The ac controller could be bad not sending current to the AC clutch. If you have power to the relay, depending on the vehicle, the relay may not be getting a ground signal.

2003 Monte Carlo Super Sport AC has been charged with Freon

Very good, but there is no question here, just a statement. 'Freon' is a brand name used for all refrigeration gases and in most cases incorrect as use has ceased to protect the ozone layer. Freon (/?fri??n/ FREE-on) is a registered trademark of the Chemours Company and generic descriptor for a number of halocarbon products. They are stable, nonflammable, low toxicity gases or liquids which have generally been used as refrigerants and as aerosol propellants. In the mid-1970s, photochemical dissociation of Freons and related CFCs was implicated as a major cause of the apparent degradation of Earth's ozone layer. Depletion of the ozone could create a threat to animal life on Earth because ozone absorbs ultraviolet radiation that can induce skin cancer. The use of Freons in aerosol-spray containers was banned in the United States in the late 1970s. By the early 1990s, accumulating evidence of ozone depletion in the polar regions had heightened worldwide public alarm over the problem, and by 1996 most developed countries had banned the production of nearly all Freons. Monte Carlo air conditioning is 2.4 lbs (38.4 ounces) of R-134a refrigerant. How it is done, a Tip I wrote. https://www.fixya.com/cars/r29878326-recharging_vehicle_air_conditioner ..

Why does my ac in my car smell like gas?

Two potential failures come to mind for this issue; a dirty cabin filter or a fuel system leak. Cabin filters catch debris that is suspended in the air before it comes out of the vents. These contaminants build up on the surface of the filter and can produce a foul odor and reduce airflow. If this is the case, the cabin filter simply needs to be replaced in order to resolve the problem. A fuel system leak is another possibility but is a much more serious issue. Fuel that escapes the system will evaporate into the air which can then be drawn into the A/C system via the fresh air intake (located beneath the cowl area, close the the windshield wipers). Although this would cause a foul odor in the cabin, the bigger problem is that flammable liquid is close to a heat source (exhaust) under the hood which is a recipe for disaster. Because this is a potential safety issue, I'd recommend having a trained mechanic inspect for a fuel leak and repair as necessary.

When my AC is running my truck wants to idle way down and sometimes shuts off how do I solve that problem how do I solve that problem

Without specifics about your vehicle, I can only say its probably an issue with your idle control. Vehicles generally have a way to increase rpm to compensate for the drain the compressor puts on the motor.
