How do you change the clutch on a 1994 Peugeot 106 XND?

This is a BIG job. I sugest taking it to a garage inless you have a lift and special tools. Clutch change is graded three spanners by Haynes difficult but not impossible - since you ask the question here I guess that means you don't even have a Haynes manual so probably are best taking it to a garage. Peugeot estimate 4 hours for gearbox removal and refitting - make that 8-12 for the average DIY mechanic doing it for the first(hopefully only) time. Try a clutch clinic. Given the age of the car is it worth it?

Clutch sticks down when driving once in a while why?

May be clutch cable sticking, clutch lever on the gearbox sticking or the actual friction plate in the clutch sticking on the shaft. the latter would probably mean taking the gearbox out to check. The clutch lever on box is easily oiled but usually the return from a clutch is great enough to pull it back but check anyway.

Is there a way to replace the AC clutch coil without removing the compressor from a 1993 Topaz with front wheel drive?

This is possible, as long as you can get the c-clip off. Small space to work in. Most times because of the small space, its better to just have the system drained at the garage, remove the pump from underneath by taking the torsion bar support plate off, change the dryer, add the upgrade oil from r12 to 134 special oil, the auto parts will have it, and fill with 134. What you have to be careful of if you are trying to take the clutch out while pump still on engine, is that the clutch will not want to come of, so you pry it with a bar, and the the seal blows, and there goes all the r12, and now you have to replace the whole pump.
