No doubt. If and when you ever get to the states, you'll need to let all of us know ahead of time. At least someone in the area you'll be going to go. Then maybe meet up and let you shoot some shit up.

Is there a list of USA states, or nations, where gun ownership is forbidden / allowed sometimes / or (as I heard) compulsory)?

In Wikipedia, "pneumatic rifle" redirects to "air gun"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_gun
which describes together 5 sorts of guns:-

(1) Spring-piston air guns
(2) Pneumatic air guns, pressurized by pumping with a lever (one stroke)
(3) Pneumatic air guns, pressurized by pumping with a lever (many strokes)
(4) Pre-charged pneumatic (PCP) pressurized before shooting from an external air or gas cylinder
(5) With an onboard high-pressure air or gas cylinder (often CO2)

All the airguns that I have seen here in England are type 1.

What pneumatic rifles are there of type 5?

This Youtube video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XHvkMVB5mM
shows a homemade (?bolt action) type 5 whose cylinder is its butt.

Those are pretty common here. Lots of air pistols use small CO2 cylinders. Also, higher end and larger caliber air rifles use compressed air tanks. Some are powerful enough to take big game. They are commonly called PCP's (pre-charged pneumatics).

Ended up using the CB's and, believe it or not, they are even quieter than the Gamo. Also, they were delicious and insanely tender.

At that website, in the AirForce Condor PCP Air Rifle, Spin-Loc Tank the cylinder seems to be its butt; in the others the cylinder seems to kept small so it can be hidden inside to let the rifle look like an ordinary rifle. Likely much more power could be got out of it if it had a big visible cylinder, ignoring styling.

If a pneumatic rifle is powerful enough to kill big game, how does its firing noise compare with the firing noise from an ordinary explosive-powered cartridge?

Likely if its magazine only contained the naked projectiles, and the propellant is in the gas cylinder, there would be no cartridge cases to eject.
