What is a good means for sealing the gap around the ductork in the pictures below? Also, the cold air retur seems to have been ripped open to run lines, how to patch this?

Spray foam for the ducts going up the wall cavities.
And a piece of sheet metal for teh return with some mastic tape.

I don't know that you can use spray foam around a flue pipe? Not sure though.

Don't see that any of those picks are of the flue pipe.
Could just be my eyes though.

But no, not around flue pipe.
