So if i have an Elvish Archdruid can i tap him on my opponent first and get the mana that he produces?


Also if i have Elvish Branchbender can i tap him on my oppent turn and get the treefolk creature?Or if i tap him on my turn the "creature" can attack??

1) Like all activated abilities that don't say otherwise, the Archdruid's ability can be activated anytime you have priority. And it cannot be responded to, because mana abilities don't use the stack.

2) Again, it's an activated ability without any timing or other restriction. You can use it anytime you have priority. And yes, if you animate a Forest (that you controlled continously since the beginning of your most recent turn), you can attack with it. A forest you didn't control continously since the beginning of your most recent turn will be summoning sick and cannot attack or tap for green mana once it got animated.

ty for your help
Novacat (I think!) put this nicely a few days ago:

Turning a permanent into a creature doesn't give it summoning sickness -- but it does make it suddenly care whether summoning sickness should apply.
And 1 more question if i have 2 Bramblewood Paragon and i play a warrior creature it will get 2 +1+1 counters?
yes.
yes

but keep in mind it has to be a warrior on the stack, Xenograft set to warrior will not grant the counters to non-native warriors

as long as the card has warrior in the type line of its Oracle text, yes

a spell and resulting permanent that's only a warrior because of Conspiracy wouldn't get any counters

...but I guess Artificial Evolution would do the job, right?

yes
the creature spell will keep the change when it becomes a creature permanent

Correct, according to rule 614.12.
But that feels extremely counterintuitive!
