I have a large tube-like extension growing out of the tree, right above the bottle, below the fronds. What is it? Do I do anything about it?
Nope! You don't need to interfere at all. These are flowers, and will drop off once they are done blooming, and producing seeds, if they do.

I am interested to learn type of palm and estimated growth height and base circumference Thank you
That appears to be a Bottle Palm. Here is an article that will explain more about their care, and about the palm: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/bottle-palm/caring-for-bottle-palm-trees.htm
Around the bottle palm I have something growing could be a flower but does not bloom, they are located where the palms leafs grow out of the tree. they are small maybe 2 inches across and look like some sort of flower. What are they? should they be cut off? do they harm the trees growth etc? Thank you Paul Port st Lucie, FL email@example.com
Unfortunately, your photo did not come through. I am unable to see what it is that you are referring to.
They do flower some unimpressive blooms on occasion. It will not harm the tree to leave it, or cut it. They will fall off as they die.
Here is an article that will help you to care for the tree:
growing from seeds and are blooming. What kind of a pot?
The ponytail palm (bottle palm) is a succulent so it needs a pot with drainage holes and well-draining soil for cacti and succulents, which you can buy premixed. It just needs to be large enough to easily hold the bulbous trunk.
Is there something wrong with it? Can I take the pointy bark off to make it smooth?
I searched references for a long time and did not find anything about your "pointy bark." I would call your local nursery or the local Cooperative Extension office and ask them about the trunk.
It is recommended you change the soil in vegetable containers each year if they are heavy feeders such as tomatoes. Other containers that hold healthy plants can just be refreshed with about 1/3 new soil.
Nearby bottle palms are normal. Center new growth starts out a bit green then turns yellow.
Palms will be susceptible to manganese deficiencies. This is, likely, what is going on. Here are some articles that will help:
I have three bottle palms in front of a house I purchased three months ago. Two of the 3 palms look fine, but the third is not doing as well. The end of the tips are yellowing and browning. Would this be an indication of too much or too little watering? I have attached photos.
Brown leaf tips can indicate lack of moisture but it can also point to a nutritional deficiency, possibly potassium. I've included more information about the nutritional deficiencies here.
