My keyboard is misaligned. nobody seems to know how to fix it including pine64 now that its out of warranty. so now I have a 150 dollar paper weight. As far as i know, nobody can service the pinephone. So now i'm in a creek without a paddle.

What do you mean by "keyboard is misaligned"?
Try booting up a different OS from SD card, and see if it's correctly aligned?

For some reason when I press the number one I get a two the letter q I get a w. To fix this problem I have installed three different os's. They all do the same. I need the one to sign into my wifi. I suspect I have a virus in my firmware but I'm not a tech guy so I don't know how to fix it.

There's no "hidden" firmware in the PinePhone, so you shouldn't be worried about some firmware "viruses" and such stuff.  Could the touchscreen digitizer on your PinePhone be defective?  I'd suggest that you boot the factory test image and use it to test out the digitizer on your PinePhone.

It may sound silly to be asked, but do you sometimes get the proper letters by pressing more to the left?

Based on that, it's safe to conclude that the touchscreen digitizer is defective.  I'd suggest that you open a ticket with the Pine64 support, and ask them for an advice; they might offer to send you a replacement screen.
