The attached picture with the written text is using a Numbers Bars study. You are using the Volume by Price study.

The Numbers Bars study requires Package 5 to be able to use it. Refer to the documentation here for the Numbers Bars:
Numbers Bars

But, if you just want basic numbers, you can still get those in your VbP, just set the Input for Draw Volume in Bars to the particular item you want. Refer to the information here:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/StudiesReference.php&ID=141&Name=Volume_by_Price#Input_DisplayVolumeInBars

Also, refer to the examples here:

If you do want to use Numbers Bars, you have to contact your broker AMP and have them change your Sierra Chart Service Package to 5 (Advanced).

Is there anyway to remove the Volume Profile(Red/Green) in each bar, and only have the numbers displayed?

Its not the Numbers Bar study, it is the Volume by Price study. I can't find the Background Coloring Method in the Settings for VbP

There is not a direct setting for the Volume by Price study to not show the volume bars. But, you can accomplish this by setting the Use Transparent Draw Style to Yes and then setting the Transparency Level to 100.

Not within the VbP study. The best option is the Volume by Price Threshold Alert V2 study. Refer to the information here:

I am trying to figure out how to change the candle color from Green/Red to a different color? Also how to change the font size of the numbers inside the candles so they're easier to read without having to adjust interactive scale

I am trying to figure out how to change the candle color from Green/Red to a different color?

In general, since those are being generated by a study, they would be controlled by the study's Subgraph Colors. Just be aware of the setting on the Subgraph tab for Use Chart Graphics Settings for Subgraph Colors. Refer to the following:
Chart Studies: Subgraphs Tab >> Use Chart Graphics Settings for Subgraph Colors

Also how to change the font size of the numbers inside the candles so they're easier to read without having to adjust interactive scale

In general, you will most likely have to adjust the scale, but refer to the following for Numbers Bars that allow you to change the font size:
Numbers Bars: Font Size and Style for Numbers Bars

Im using the Numbers Bar Study, how do I remove the #'s so it just show the Gray Volume horizontal bars in the candle and also when theres a Imbalance I want the Imbalance to be the color of the Aggressive traders, so instead of a Gray Volume bar at that price level it will be the color of Red(Sell Imbalance) or Green(Buy Imbalance). I included attached pics

To remove the numbers, set the Column # Numbers Bars Text to No Text. Refer to the following:
Numbers Bars: Column # Numbers Bars Text

To get a specific color when there is a particular imbalance, you would need to set your Percent Compare Thresholds to the values you want where the highest value would be the imbalance you want. Then set the color for that range to what you want. Refer to the following:
Numbers Bars: Column # Percent Compare Thresholds

And also the following:
Numbers Bars: Column # Range 3 Up Color

User628616:

When using the Volume by Price and using the Display Volume in Bars, then Subgraph 7 (SG7) controls the color and size of the numbers. Refer to the information here:

What is your Comparison Method set to?

Also, you point to a few comparisons that have zeros, therefore you would want to enable the option for Enable Zero Bid/Ask Compares and then set the Zero Value Compare Action as desired. Refer to the information at the following for these:
