What if a quarter back has an incomplete pass in their own en zone is it a safety?

No ... an incomplete forward pass in the end zone does not result in a safety. However, if a quarterback is in the end zone and is called for an intentional grounding penalty, the result is a safety. Also, if the offensive team is called for a holding penalty in their end zone the result is a safety regardless of whether the quarterback was in the end zone at the time of the penalty.

If a player intercepts a ball and is tackled as time runs out but there is a defensive penalty on the play what happens?

The penalty is enforced and time is restored to when the penalty took place. Since the game can't end on a defensive penalty, the offense (the intercepting team) would be given one untimed down.
