- So if the pope excommunicates someone from catholic church then he's wrong or has no power to do that from your perspective as representative of the catholic churc
Excommunication means that the pope bans or suspends you from receiving Communion. The clue is in the word ex - communicate.

This is not at all the same as expelling somebody from the Catholicism, let alone Christianity. Nobody has the power to do that.

If a referee books a soccer player a yellow or even a red card, does that mean he is no longer a soccer player?
