If a field goal is kicked and the ball bounces off the upright and back into the field of play is it a live or dead ball?

It's dead. The goal posts are out of bounds, so if a ball touches them it becomes dead. (Although if a ball hits an upright or the crossbar but still goes through, the kick is still good.)

No. If the punt crosses the back of the end zone it is a touch back, and the other team takes possession on the 20 yard line. A drop kick, however, where the ball bounces off of the ground first, can be kicked and is treated the same as a field goal.

I'm not completely sure but I believe once the kicker has kicked the ball if the ball lands in the end zone it doesn't matter where it bounces after that, once its in the end zone it's automatically a touchback and play begins on the 20 yard line.

If you are out side the 22 and you kick it out on the FULL it goes back to where the player kicked it. if its inside the 22 and you kick it out on the full, its from where the ball goes out NOT bounces.
