When I first started my garden, I started with 2 Bell Peppers, 2 Sweet Bannana Peppers, and 2 Tomato plants, each in 5-gal containers. My question is all the plants are about 2 1/2 ft. tall. Will they get root bound and need transplanting into ground or what?

No, they should not get rootbound and should be fine throughout the growing season as long as you make sure to provide them with plenty of water. Container plants require more irrigation, watering everyday and even twice a day in temps over 85 F.
