Is Sheep's Stomach Halal or Haram?

It is Makrooh-e-Tahrimi. (Severly disliked, close to Haraam).
The same applies to the testicles, a very common dish is something called 'katakat" (forgive my spelling). Sometimes this dish also contains testicles, it is Makrooh-e-Tahrimi.
Allahu waRasoolahu a'alamu

In Pakistan this is normally called Pota or Ojri - common in breakfast.It is Makrooh [Disliked but Not Haram] though, but I still fail to see why would people like to relish on an animals stomach?
Yes that is right, it is makruh (due to the filth in it),but if it is cleansed properly before cooking then there is no harm or sin.
Also known as tripe in English.
It can be quite nice if cooked properly(well i think so anyway).

Yes I also heard it is nice when cooked properly.. It goes through so many stages of cleaning. e.g first clean and then boil then clean etc etc by the time it is finihs atleast 4 people of one family have fainted due to the smell

is the stomach of sheep known as PHOTEE by any chance.. maybe my spelling are wrong... but when you cook this PHOTEE i think it is the stomach it absoulotely stinks but some elder people really like this and think it is healthy....but for eating the stomach is their any SIN as it is MAKHROO i dont think it would be a SIN e.g like PIG
In my country its commonly called aujri. Yes, makrooh-e-tahrimi is regarded a sin, especially if one makes a habit of eating it unnecessarily. And in this case, there is no need for eating it. so it would be in great taqwah to abstain from it.
And Allah and His Rasool know best.

If these things... eg stomach , testicles are makrooh... what about in some arab countires when they make the whole sheep and put it all on the table... is it allowed for them... ie is it different in other madhabs??
Ive seen hearts in some shops... is that allowed???
