A lot.

Would need to push over 450 I would say. Angelo Berardinelli has benched 490 in competition at 165, and Dr. Larry Miller has also done over 490 and they have both been invited at one time or another, so I would say somewhere in their neighborhood would get you there.

Im new to power lifting, but are you allowed to compete in only one lift? If so wouldnt that drastically effect what weight class you fell into, Say if you stuck only to bench, you could work solely on the muscles that create a good bench and save yourself from gaining weight in the other departments

You can do bench press only if you want. I think in some feds you can do dead only but im not certain about that.

WABDL allows for bench only and deadlift only, no full meets at all.

Some meets allow you to compete is a single lift, other don't. What some people will do is enter the meet, but lift the miminum in the two lifts they don't want to compete in and go all out in the other. You probably wouldn't get a trophy if you won that one lift, though.
