Dayton Audio DCS255-4 10" Classic Subwoofer 4 Ohm
What amp would you recommend for this driver in a 1.2ft3 ported enclosure, the DA250 or Bash300 amplifier?
Either of those will be plenty for this woofer. I usually recommend Dayton amplifiers simply because we can repair them if something should happen once the warranty is up.

Want to use this in ported alignment, ideally a 1 cubic foot box to keep it small - I have a Yung SD200-6 with 6 db bass boost at 35hz - would this work for music only system? If yes, what length / diameter port should I use?
If you have the boosted Yung amp a ported box would not be a good idea. You could easily do sealed however which will work well and be smaller. You could get away with 0.6-0.7 cubic feet stuffed and reach into the 30's with the bass boost.

Planning on running two 10"'s magnet to magnet or 1 10 facing down, with a sure 4 x 100 W amp. Trying to keep the box sizes small as possible.sealed or ported? What is the smallest size box for each? Will be going on a bike.
Sealed will provide the smallest box, but limit the low end from the woofers in an application like that. I would recommend 0.8 cubic feet per woofer, with a 3" diameter, 10" long port for a tuning frequency of about 44 Hz.

I've got this sub in a .80 cubic ft sealed box with a 100 watt amp. Just wondering instead of a port, would 2-10" dayton audio PRs work with this setup?
This will work quite well. I would recommend adding 200 grams to each passive for a tuning frequency of 35 Hz.

I says .3 ft3 for sealed. If i do that, what kind of performance would i expect from the sub. I was looking to go small. What would be the best small sealed box?
An enclosure that is 0.3 cubic feet will yield and F3 of about 75 Hz and in room response into the low 40's which will work well for music.

While doing a search on replacement woofer for the Peavey Quadra 10 speaker, the Dayton DC S255-4 10" came up. Will this speaker suffice as a direct or better replacement for the Quadra 10 in an outdoor setting?
That is actually not a good choice for this application. I would recommend the Peavey Pro 10, part number 294-3126, or the Dayton PA255-8 which is part number 295-030.
