A strange new sound I have never heard before, kind of sounds like an ultra sound. I can tell its the wheel, front passenger side. It just started and seems to be getting louder, or im just paranoid....

take it to an accredited service shop that has experience on your make of vehicle , have it road tested and get a quote for repairs
your description of the noise is very vague to say the least so you need a proper diagnosis before it gets dangerous

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed

One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

Rubbing coming from front passenger side tire?

I presume that the tyre you have replaced is with the same specification size as on the either side, If so you need to check if the tyre is rubbing against the mudflaps or the mudguard specially when the side is loaded or the wheel is turned to one side. Lift up the side with a jack, turn the wheel to either side and check if there is enough gap on the sides. If you had replaced the tyre after a burst/puncture, had run the car after this had happened, then the wheel alignment must be looked in specially for the tow in/ out. Check for the wheel position using a thread held against the rear wheel and the front wheel postioned with a slight inner view, check the wheel from the top to bottom with a plumline. You will get some indication if there had been any shift in the chassis or the suspension. press down the side up and down to hear any creaking, if so check on your suspension parts, the lower arm, the roll bars and the strut/ shock absorbers. You have the problem lurking around here. Hope my advice helps you out. Good luck good day

While driving i hear a rubbing sound passenger side front end the faster i go the louder it gets i just got it back from the shop they can not find the cause all 4 wheels turning freely on lift

Sounds like one of three things. A bad bearing would make a rubbing sound and get worse the faster you traveled. A warped rotor could also produce that sensation. Lastly but not as likely is a stuck caliper. Since the wheels turned freely on a lift, the caliper isn't as likely as the first two but still a possibility. I'd take the car to a brake shop and have a free diagnosis done. I'm still leaning toward a bad bearing. Best of luck and thank you for using Fixya!

Drive train is getting loud in town and on freeway, differential?

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. This is common in Subarus. It actually gets louder with the speed of the car and can go bad in the front driver/passenger sides or both rear sides. A wheelbearing can cost around 69.00 at an auto store, just specify if its front or rear and see if you can find a good friend/mechanic to replace it for you. My brother has done all of mine in all my subarus, very familiar with the sound you describe, its like an airplane taking off.
Good Luck.

Whining sound from front passenger side.

Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.
