    Is there a way to delete an item from my downloads folder that is in my dock without dragging it to the trash? Is there a way to get a context menu on items in the downloads folder?

    Not natively. There may be a tweak out there but I'm not sure. It's certainly possible.

    You could right click it and select move to trash, unless you are trying to avoid the trash altogether, in which case, i'm not sure how to do that

    He's using the dock not the Finder. You can't right click on items in a folder in the dock.
