You could use it as a setting, but it sounds a little too preposterous as an OC. The only time it would be allowed as a character would be as an NPC in an RP you were hosting.

How big can you get with an oc aka how large can an oc be without being too hard to use in a rp?

Depends on what type of character you're using. If you want a Cutiefly to be 7 ft tall, you're taking things too far. If you want to have an abnormally large Torterra, that would be okay (not to the size of like, a metropolitan city though). 

For humans/gijinkas: the tallest recorded human height was 8ft 11in. Do with that information what you will.

Is it against the rules to have a female Gallade or a male salazzle? Does Pokémon with only one specific gender always have to be that gender?

Yes. Those are single gender Pokemon for a reason (for example, male Salandit can't even evolve into a Salazzle). 

Identity is a little different from being physically male or female, so you could refer to them as a specific gender but they would not actually be that gender. This would also apply to genderless Pokemon.

How powerful can you make an oc without godmodding or sounding very stupid (an example would be nice)

Can you be more specific? It's very easy to overstep bounds, and a lot of it depends on phrasing. What did you have in mind?

Erasing memories is definitely a hairy business. If you're doing it to a non-NPC (someone else's OC), the best thing is to ask permission first. Work out what memories they will lose - maybe put a limit or define the kind of memories that can be erased. For instance, maybe make it so they forget the last 24 hours, or that they forget everything involving your OC. You can also make it have lasting side effects on your character. Looking through memories can be overwhelming, so you can probably imagine that your character would have a migraine afterwards, or maybe even get some of his own memories mixed up with those he viewed. 

For your Noivern: While it is definitely possible for sound to create enough vibration to make something explode (like glass), keep in mind what happens before that. It takes a tremendous amount of pressure to make a head explode - your victim will most likely pass out first, and even then not before their eardrums burst. If you want to have your OC kill helpless, unconscious victims then it would not necessarily be considered godmodding. Sound is hard to balance correctly since it's not really physical as most other attacks are. Perhaps you could add a limiter that has to do with concentration? For example, if your Noivern gets distracted by something (an attempted counterattack or even a bright flash of light) their attack is cut off and they must re-inhale, as it were, to attack again.

Is there any rule that says I can't have some references to religions in my rps like some characters plot points mirrors some religious figures. If you need an example if your confused here's one: I'm making a story with some biblical reference most of them are slight references but if I actual referenced a biblical story in a rp would that be okay? Sorry If I'm rambling I get paranoid about the things I'm working on.

Religious undertones are fine and if you wish to take inspiration from religious stories that's okay (as long as it's not the inap ones obviously). As long as religion isn't being used in an offensive manner it should be fine.

Either PM people on PS or make a forum post in the RustyRP section. 

Honestly the best way is maybe first ask your friends or even run your RP as a custom first to gain popularity.
