How can you tell if your hamster does not like you when you put your hand in the cage and it stands up on its hind legs and opens its mouth extremely wide as if ready to bite and is that normal?

Your hamster is showing that he doesn't like you at the moment. Feed your hamster through the bars of the cage with his favorite treats. bring your hamster to the vet and ask what to do to make your hamster more friendly towards you.

Hamsters tend to store food in their mouths. They like to carry and then hide it in secret places. Unless you see the hamster having trouble eating or breathing, this food in the mouth is normal.
