Even the basic form of this is more powerful than a splash damage potion and way easier to get. That can kind of explain the balance issue for the idea as a whole. If it took like 4 Gunpowder and did damage around the amount of a splash damage potion without breaking blocks, and then all the extra stuff was removed it would be okay.

Perhaps limiting the amount of items to be added to pumpkins be 3, much like amount of gunpowder added to fireworks. Reducing the power of the explosion damage to that of a firework and requiring at least 1 gunpowder to craft this might make things less OP. That is the reason I said not to make it stackable.
So let's say you made one with a Healing potion and Regen, you still need gunpowder so you will take damage and heal much like arrows tipped with healing or Regen.
I do see how hitting someone with both Poison and Instant damage can seem OP. So perhaps adding a 1sec delay before they explode will make it better.
As of now it's just an idea that needs polishing as I did not think of PvP when coming up with this. Often I put PvP on the back burner as I'm not a PvP player. So I thank you for your input and will look into ways to adjust this to not be so OP.
It Is Nothing, Making you yourself a creeper, and is a comfortable crafting thing. Atleast this also makes it easy to get, as pumpkins aren't rare to get, and so are creepers. This makes no challenge, as you explode the bomb in pvp, and heals you(if you carry a healing potion). OP and Also lets you make no use of weapons, therefore no fun in minecraft, and no serious combat.
