1. Let’s say you believe this, about not closing off a window or door. So what do you do if you are renovating, and knocking down a wall that has windows or doors?
2. Someone mentioned that food stores under a bed becomes tamei, because food stores under a person is tamei. So what about on an airplane? Does that mean that food that you put under the seat in front of you is tamei?

I don't know the first one, but for airplane, I try to put it in front of me but not under. It's tamei from being under a sleeping person. If I'm not sleeping, I'll put it under my own seat.

1. You drill a hole. So theres still an opening there.
2. AFAIK yes.

Some places more strict & a drilled hole is not enough. They do 12 inch by 12 inch opening.
I put some nice artwork over my hole

Where would you drill a hole? A wall is being removed.

Apparently food becomes tamei when under a sleeping person. So theoretically, food would become tamei if stored under the seat of a sleeping person.

Under a seat of a sleeping person is fine.

I think if the food is double wrapped it's fine.

OP, according to my posek, this applies to any opening that goes from indoor to outdoor - door, window, aircondition slot, exhaust fans, and certain pipes that go from indoor to outdoor. Removing an indoor wall is not a problem. And we were told to drill a hole. Its best to ask since there are different shitos. You should certainly ask and take care of it as you do not want to mess with these kind of things.
Our posek told us - don't hold back from drilling a hole, if you do, you'll regret it when someone gets hurt...
Good luck

We moved into a place that had a door closed up. Dh had someone drill a long thin hole through the wall. You can’t even see it.

Interior doors are not a problem.

We closed off a window in our home recently and left a tiny opening.

Well how far does this go?
My daughter's bedroom is directly above my kitchen. Does the food in my kitchen become טמא because my daughter is sleeping above it?

If it’s being removed then the whole wall is now a hole and not a problem.
It’s only a problem to build a full wall where there was a window or a door earlier.

No. It's a separate room.
