Has anyone ever had a feeling in their nose like there's a ball in it and it's weighing your sinuses down??? I can breathe fine out of my sinuses and they're not congested but I get this weird pressure on the bridge of my nose and it feels like a weighing down kind of pressure. Also, I feel this weird tingling sensation on the roof of my nose. Kind of like air pressure being released. It makes these little air popping noises throughout the day as well.

I have a polyp in my sphenoid sinus, could that be causing these weird pressures? It's a 1cm polyp.

Yes, that might be what is causing those symtoms. But, almost sounds like post nasal drip to me. I would see an ENT doctor for a proper diagnosis.
