Tang Band W5-1138SMF 5-1/4" Paper Cone Subwoofer Speaker
What is the ideal sealed enclosure for this driver? Would also some sort of resistive pressure release in the cabinet benefit also?
The ideal volume is 0.1 cubic feet, but 0.2 will work well and drop F3 a few Hz. The enclosure needs to be completely sealed.

I am designing a compact subwoofer for near field monitoring purpose. I can't find the right off-the-shelf port that will fit. If I use just one Dayton SD175-PR 6-1/2" Passive Radiator, what is the range internal volume necessary to work well?
I would recommend a volume of 0.27 cubic feet for this combination. With 40 grams added to the passive you will have a tuning frequency of 40 Hz and an F3 of 45 Hz.

I just ordered the neodymium version of this speaker, and then realized the ported box design I have calls for this ferrite driver. Are they close enough to be interchangeable?
Generally speaking, yes. There will not be enough of a difference between the two to need to make changes to the design.

How well will this driver work in a Band-Pass design? What kind of size and Frequency response might be obtained?
This would not be a very good choice for a bandpass design, the recommended chamber volumes are around 0.1 cubic foot each. This will be better served in a small sealed or vented enclosure.

W5-1138SMF 5-1/4" Sub, what means A: 6-1/8", B: 4-3/4" ? My opening hole cut is 5.75 inch &abox hight inside 7 inch. Plenty depth. Can I use also W6-1139SIF 6-1/2" Sub, A: 7", B: 5-1/2", C: 4 ? How much cubic foot sealed enclosure do they need?
This is in the 5-1/4" woofer category but the actual frame measures 6-1/8" in diameter. With the dimensions you provided, the W6-1139SIF would be a better choice.

I am going to use this sub in a box 20"x10"x10" with 2 Dayton RS100-4's but in the description it says sub is best in enclosure of 0.26ft3 ported but above you say "This woofer needs about 0.75 cubic feet to really work well ported". Which is correct?
I recommend 0.75 cubic feet if you want decent extension from this driver.
