My 05 passat will not open some doors sometimes, will open all other times and also will lock all doors except driver door sometimes but other times will lock them all please help? was wondering if it was...

It isn't a key problem, but it's most likely to be a door actuator (motor) issue, if indeed it is an issue.
Many cars these days are fitted with a two stage lock program. This means that the first time the key activates the 'open' command then only the driver's door opens. You have to press the key fob twice to have all the doors open. This is a security feature to prevent potential criminals from breaking in other doors and snatching valuables when you activate the locks. So now the driver has control over one door or all doors, depending on their requirement. On these types of modern systems there is often a method of setting the program to open one then all with the single key press, or all doors at the same time with one key press.
Anyway, just try one press and see if it opens the driver door only and then try two presses to see if it opens the other doors. If it works this way, then it is supposed to work this way.

Unable to open drivers door with the key and when door is opened, all doors make a loud buzzing sound.

The description isn't clear but I will take a stab at it. It sounds like there are two things going on. First the key won't work, this could be caused by the key being worn out, or the door key cylinder or door latch is broken. Second, When the door is opened and you then start to hear that buzzing sound. You are hearing the (door open) chime.

Front doors will not open from outside.

take a pitcher of hot wtaer out to one of the doors and pour the hot water starting at the top of the door and you should be able to open the door , now if the key lock is frozen use a lighter and heat the key up first then put the key in the lock and turn the key to unlock the door
