Always a good idea to check with the HOA on any questions. 
Most condos units work as if the owners own the interior and the
association owns/maintains the exterior. Carpet will not be a problem as most buyers seem to want to freshen up or choose their own colors or patterns. 
Townhouses as opposed to stackable condos, are side by side units with most having a fire wall between them.
I can't see a reason that the noise level would would make a difference.

Your homeowner association may have limitations on hard surface flooring, because hard floors (like hardwood) can transmit noise to other adjacent homes. I'd recommend that you check with the homeowner association, or review your CC&Rs for any restrictions. I love hardwood flooring, and hope you succeed at installing some in your home!

Normally flooring inside the home doesn't raise a red flag but since your home is attached and may affect other homeowners, i always advise checking in with management before taking on any home improvement projects. Good luck!
