Theoretically; As any mass approaching the core of a black hole, then would the tidal force difference effect the quantum level and rip apart matter?

Well, if we assume that a singularity actually exists in the center of a Black Hole, then any composite objects should eventually be ripped apart by tidal forces.

Also at the very centre of a black hole would gravity cease to exert its force since in any direction the "pull" would be equal?

Again, this depends on what is actually inside a black hole. We have no idea what we will find inside one. If a singularity exists then no, you would always be drawn towards the singularity. It's difficult to think in terms of "normal" gravity, as at the extreme scale of a black hole the curvature of spacetime is much harder to talk about as a "force" if my understanding is correct. I would expect that as you get close to the singularity that the curvature becomes so extreme that there aren't even any paths leading away from it anymore! But, as I am not familiar with the math of general relativity and how it applies to black hole singularities, I would take that with a grain of salt.

I don't follow you. Infinite in what aspect? And why would that affect whether its stationary or not? Stationary with respect to what?
