The first one with the hissing type noise just started today. And second one with creaking noise has been happening for a long time. Any ideas?

Creaking is steering rack bushings.

Agreed sounds like bushings. I had a similar sound on my old jeep. If you look at them and they look fine, spray them down with some white lithium grease or something and see if that helps.

Maybe hissing was the wrong word. It's like rubber rubbing or something. It's very noticeable in the video. The sound before I turn the car off

I had the exact same creaking, turned out it was coming from my tie rod end boot..being my tie rod was still good (had zero play) I didn't want to replace it yet. So I took a can of white lthithim grease, attached the red straw to the can, than pop the red straw into the tie rod end boot and filled her up with grease, I seal back the tiny needle hole with a dab of silicone, and boom dead quiet going on a month now ! Pretty sure I still have the video I made to show my buddy how to fix it, if I come across it ill drop it here for ya

Couldn't find it but this is it I found a similar video on YouTube, I just didn't use super glue nor did I use duct tape lol, I poked the red straw through the boot, shot it up with grease, removed the red straw (grease did come out of the hole so I knew it was full in there), cleaned it all up, than took a small dab on my fingertip of high temp silicone and covered the needle sized hole..that's it done, been quiet for a month now.

I agree, sounds like a ball joint is dry and doesnt have grease in it. But to rule out the rack I would get all of your p/s fluid out and replace it with lucas p/s fluid because of the seals. Once you change the fluid move the wheel back and forth a few times and see if it gets goes away. I would def say ball joint here though.
