These are the two codes P0171 p0411. I've looked online but no one is really clear. Couple days ago my car starting getting louder. Now the engine light is on and my car sounds really loud almost like I have a rip in my exhaust very deep muffler sound coming from the front driver/passenger side. What could this be? Also feels like my car has lost some power when trying to accelerate

This happened to my car when I first got it too. I had an exhaust leak, it might of had to do with the flex pipe, I cant remember. But if its getting loud, you most definitely have an exhaust leak. That could be causing other problems too. Your MAF might be dirty as well. You also could have a vaccuum leak.

I would start off by inspecting your exhaust. Also, pick up a can of MAF cleaner (there is a DIY on this sight on how to clean you Mass Air Flow sensor) and clean the MAF. Visual inspection of the exhaust and intake system would help. You might be able to hear a vaccuum leak. But definitely start with the exhaust.
