Plant seeds, whether for flowers or some other kind of plant, need to ripen on the plant before you pick them. As far as I know, there's no way to ripen seeds off the plant.

Planted these a few months ago and they were doing great, but one has yellowing leaves. It has been in the 100’s and have been watering daily. They said they were drought tolerant.
Yellowing leaves are a sign of watering issues. With temperatures as high as your receiving, I would say it is a lack of water.
Water more and make sure you are watering deep enough. You will need to water twice a day with temperatures above 85 degrees.

My sweet pea plant is starting to get yellow leaves on the bottom part of the plant and lots of pods all of a sudden. Overwatering? Am I supposed to be doing something for the plant to be fuller? Do I want pods? Thanks.
Yellow leaves can happen for a number of reasons. If leaves turn yellow suddenly, as opposed to yellowing slowly over time, the #1 cause in too little moisture in the soil. Try watering more, or more often.

I cannot get sweet peas to mature into a flower. When is the best time to grow them? The sun can be too much for them all day, I found, or do I need shade for them. Do they like what kind of soil? I need help because I have gone through about 10 packs of seeds.
They do enjoy sunlight, but in high temps will need extra water to compensate for the inevitable heat stress. If they are healthy but not blooming, they likely do have too much nitrogen. Give them some phosphorus to balance them back out. Bone meal is a good source of phosphorus.
