Dayton Audio RS180-8 7" Reference Woofer
The 7" paper version has a 1.5" VC. The metal version states that it is 1"...is that correct? Every other reference woofer size has the same size VC in both the paper and metal versions.
This is correct and it the same on the 4 ohm and 8 ohm versions of each. I would suspect that the different masses of the respective cones made this necessary to keep the performance similar.

im gonna use two of these woofers and a Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter. is that gonna be a good match? what the size of box should be?
Yes those will work fine together. I would recommend a 1 cubic foot enclosure with a 3" diameter, 8" long port for a tuning frequency of 43 Hz.

What length port would I need for .67 cubic ft box if I used a 2" diameter? I happen to have some laying around.
I would recommend a length of 5.5" in that volume which will tune the enclosure to 44 Hz.

What would the port size be for a .67 cubic ft box.
I would use a 2-1/2 inch diameter port that is 8-3/8 inches long. This will tune the cabinet to 44 Hz and yield an F3 of 47 Hz

This is my first ever question to any forum. kindly let me know which is the best matched tweeter with this woofer. design apparch is mtm. active version using hypex PSC-2 400.
The most popular tweeters for this would be either of the RS28 dome tweeters. There is no such thing as a single best match, but these will work very well with this mid-bass.

I'm looking to use these for side surrounds but I'm limited in total box mounting depth. The total depth for the surrounds would be only 4.5". Would these work or do they need more space behind the rear of the woofer?
These only require a mounting depth of about 3-1/8". They do not have vented pole pieces so they do not need space behind the magnet.
