Hello. You have 2 separate problems here. The P0191 (fuel rail pressure sensor circuit problem) may just be a symptom - it is reporting suspect fuel pressure on the rail. The fuel pressure on the rail is controlled by the fuel supply system (pump & filter) and the fuel pressure regulator. Check fuel pressure on the rail with a gauge, and the engine running, to determine what the actual pressure may be. Then you can pursue diagnosis of a fuel supply problem or a fuel pressure sensing problem.

The P0452 code indicates a pressure sensing problem with the EVAP system purge line pressure (tank and purge line). This is part of the fuel tank pressure test done after each engine "start" cycle. To have this all addressed I recommend having a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle in detail to give you a second opinion.
