Signaling or Signalling. Which one is correct?

Depends on whether you mean US or UK English. In the UK, "l" is always doubled at the end of such words, in the US, never.

It depends on which Ms Thistlebottom you are trying to please: the US one likes "signaling," the UK one "signalling."

By "such words", I take it you mean "words not accented on the final syllable".
We do double the final consonant in "occurring", for example.

Except by old-fashioned people. The US rule, which has the advantage of consistency, is fairly recent. In edited text, single l is the rule.

I used to read "kidnaped" to rhyme with "raped", as opposed to "rapped".

'Consistency' is a matter of opinion. I would be tempted to pronounce 'signaling' with a 'nail' vowel, because that is consistent with what happens in other English words. Same with 'worshiped', which I feel begs for a 'shipe' sound.

That is a separate question. MWC10 gives "kidnapped" as the preferred spelling, and most publishers would agree, because the second syllable has a secondary stress. So also "programming". There are people who think that secondary stress doesn't count, but that is not the U.S. standard.
