Doing some of these workouts I have come across a few cardio exercises I can't do. I live in an apartment so on days when it is raining or I am doing light cardio indoors I have to find alternate cardio exercises for the ones that involve you to jump, hop or run. What are good alternatives for these? Without missing a lot of the benefit of the others.

Dont know if you consider these movements jumping. But mountain climbers and squat thrusters are a good start imo.

They are easy enough to control where I'm not banging around too much

Why not buy a mat to cushion your landing? ;) hope that helps!

Consider buying a step.

If you can't do cardio when you are inside just  choose 4 or more exercises and do light weight more reps at a higher pace without stopping. Do as many rounds as you can in 20 mins. it will make you feel as you just ran for an hour.

I will try that later tonight. Today is a double cardio day for me. Thanks for the advice.
