Other questions about "Location"

Q: I am just really hoping to get away from my current location.

Can I replace hoping by hope? If not, why?
A: You could use hope but it would have to look like this: “I hope to get away from my current location.” Hoping needs another verb (to be in this case) in order to know when the subject is “hoping”. Does that make sense?
Q: When referring to a location, which preposition should be used: "before" or "in front of"? What is the difference in nuance? Which one is more often used in the speech? For example: 1) I stand here before you... / He stood up before all these people... 2) This happened before my eyes/ or in front of me.
A: Both are used frequently and they're interchangeable (most of the time). "In front of" means something is in front of you. Whereas "before" means you're standing before something (in front of something). Aka, if I say "Peter is standing in front of me." Everyone will assume peter in standing before me, there's little to no nuance here.
