When you accelerate is your exhaust smoke a different color? (Blue=oil, black=excess fuel)

Sounds like you may have blown a seal or line on the transmission and are about to or maybe have destroyed it. The power steering pump or hose may also be the culprit.
I suggest you start checking your fluid levels and see what is low.

Power steering was empty, guess that's what was leaking, but idk about transmission...is there a berraring for the driveshaft, cuz it only whines under a load (giving it gas)

No bearing, but there is a bushing. I don't think it would whine though. If you are hearing a transmission whine it may be the pump at the front or possibly an internal roller bearing or planetary gears.

well found out was leaking, I have no idea where it came from, looks like the impact was from the inside, I have no idea how it happened..any guesses? so I'm kinda scared so idk i'll order a new cover and look when I get that in, didn't wanna take it off cuz I have no extra fluid and had to move it, so it's gotta sit

Looks like you may have some broken internal parts in the rear end. :(
