difficulty finding and wondering is there a way to bypass this sensor to get car on the road

Is there no part number printed on the knock sensor itself? Have you tried to unplug the sensor and see if the engine starts?

Knock sensors are difficult to bypass because they produce an oscillating signal according to engine vibration, which is difficult to replicate.

How would you unplug the sensor

The sensor should have an electrical connector, either at the sensor or further down the wiring loom because it's not hardwired directly to the ECU.
