Synonyms of "Noise" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between The noise of the rain frightened the residents and The rain's noise frightened the residents ?

"The sound of the rain frightened the residents." Or - "The rain made a noise that frightened the residents."
Q: What is the difference between I always try not to make noise when he sleeps. and I always try not to make noise while he is sleeping. ?
A: "I always try not to make noise when he sleeps"
1. in general, he sleeps here every day (for instance), and I try not to make noise every day when he is sleeping
2. a bit awkward, but it can focus on the action itself. "sleep" in general is more often thought of as a process than a concrete action, but this form nonetheless emphasizes that. (a better variant, if this is the goal, would be "when he goes to sleep," which sounds natural)

"I always try not to make noise while he is sleeping"
1. focus on the process. Throughout the duration of his sleeping, you try not to make any noise. It would sound a bit better without "always," in my opinion, because there's a logical mixing of "always" and a fixed portion of time
Q: What is the difference between The noise grew louder and louder. and The noise got louder and louder. ?
A: "Grew" is more creative
Q: What is the difference between What's that noise? and What's all that noise? ?

"All" would mean that it is loud in that sentence.
Q: What is the difference between noise and sound ?
A: They are very similar words and either one can be used in many cases. For instance, "What was that noise?" or "What was that sound?" mean the same thing. (In these cases, both are being used as a noun.)

But, there are also sentences like "I like the sound of this" or "This music sounds good" where 'noise' would not make sense.

Noise can sometimes have more of a negative meaning. like in "Stop making so much noise!"
Or, as the adjective 'Noisy', you could say "This is a very noisy machine".
