Several possibilities come to mind with that description: You COULD have a bad solenoid or starter, you COULD have a bad keyswitch, you COULD have a bad battery connection that needs cleaning. I'm certain there are numerous other possibilities that could account for what you describe, these are just the first things I would look at. If you have any other information on the subject post another question and I'll put this on a watchlist.

You could accidentally short out the power wire to the radio and blow a fuse. But you really do not have to disconnect the battery terminal. Just remove the fuse for the radio circuit and you will be fine.

You just changed your battery and now nothing happens at all when you turn the ignition?

you either overlooked a hot lead that needs to be reconnected at the battery, or you grounded a hot wire and blew a fuse or fusible link wire

What happens if you connect the ground wire to the terminal and the red wire to the - terminal on the car battery ie connect the battery backwards but did not start the car?

once a battery is connected even if the key is not in the ignition, there is always power at certain points in your car. Connecting a battery backwards will not start your car, but it can and will fry the wires to your starter.

Would changing battery of 2005 Toyota corolla cause radio malfunction?

Yes. If you disconnect the battery from the vehicle what happens is that the anti theft system on the radio thinks the the radio is being stolen because it loses power. What you have to do is enter a code that is provided to you by the dealership. If they don't have the code on record then the dealer has to remove the radio to find out the code.
