2002 ford escape 3.0 v6 start at the begining top hose blew on car replaced hose and refilled coolant half a mile down road coolant is not in degas tank at all
noticed that transmission fluid in water changed radiator and thermostat .when you grab the lower hose on the radiator and squeeze you heard air expel out of the overflow on the degas bottle .also not noticing any type of circulation in the degas bottle not sure if im suppose to or not just saying

I think I get what you are saying? Trans fluid in cooling system can and will soften and ruin cooling system rubber components about anywhere. If that much is fixed and system flushed clean and NO coolant got into trans fluid you may be ok and probably should replace any soft cooling system hoses if so.

Squeezing a hose and seeing motion/turbulence in a "recovery tank" (degas bottle??) isn't abnormal by itself if no pressure in the system,

What the hell is a degas bottle? Surly not where you put de-gas?

Is this degas bottle somewhat similar to a coolant system that has a combination radiator/coolant resevoir like the one I had on a 95 beretta-?

If you squeeze the hose and hear air or have fluid coming out of the degas tank, you either have a bad radiator cap or crack in the tank. Have the cap tested to see if it blows off at its rated pressure. You need a radiator cap tester to test it.

yes if you sqeeze the top hose on the radiator air will come out of the degas bottle.

It shouldn't let vapor/gas/degas/air out if system is working properly and full. The idea hasn't changed, the air rises such that when pressure is present it goes out to that bottle.

Pressure/vacuum cooling system cap does both. At the rated pressure it releases that pressure normally just from expansion of heat in this and most cases to the bottle. If liquid that goes, if vapor that goes to it. When cooling system cools and volume contracts it then draws back just liquid as any air went to the top of that bottle. At the mid point (as when engine has been off for a good while) you could squeeze a hose and see turbulence. Air should have been gone so there IS something wrong.

Combustion gasses can get into cooling system, generally head gaskets or perhaps another sealing exhaust from cooling system. You can diagnose that those gasses are in there and shouldn't be but don't know so quickly where and what it would take to make that all fixed,
