The outside bumper cover is easily repaired with bondo and over the counter automotive spray paint. The bumper cover does not need to removed.

To remove the rear bumper you must removes that are located towards the the back wheel well of the rear wheels. Then to repair paint you must paint with the same factory color, then you have to sand the touches up spot with 600 grit sand paper then repeat steps 2 more times for a perfect finish

The rear end needs to be dropped, so I suggest a transmission jack. lower it down and replace the other in the same bolt holes.

This is a fairly difficult repair. If you consider yourself a novice i would suggest consulting a licensed mechanic, or at the very least referring to the user manual that came with your car.

large jack stands and heavy duty air tools as well as special equipment for bearing and ball joint removal/installation may be needed. suspension geometry is very important and should not be adjusted by anyone who is not trained in steering and suspension theory. any damage to the frame should be inspected by a trained body shop

Without describing the problem I would have to say you need to lift the car off the ground properly and securely and release the parking brake. Manually try and rotate the drive shaft to see that it spins with freely and with minimal play. If you notice any problems you may need to disassemble the rear end.

If you mean the gears in the rear differential it is a very difficult process. Unless you are a very skilled mechanic, this should be left to professionals. It involves using caliper and shims to get a precise fit for the gears. If done incorrectly, you will end up having to reinstall them.

Well it depends on what is wrong. A gearset problem require the driveshaft be removed and the rear-end to be disassembled. A near gearset must be be setup with certain specifications or it will be ruined. Universal joints need to be pressed in and out if that is the issue.
