Bonjour Clive,

Il fait exprès de m'embêter He is annoying me on purpose

-> fixed expressionto do something on purpose

Il faut une signature expresse de mon patron We need a formal signature from my boss

-> adjective meaning "formal, imperative, express"

C'est un lavage express = It is a quick washing cycle

-> adjective that doesn't change whether it refers to something feminine or masculine

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

An adverb is associated with a verb, as opposed to adjectives, which are associated with nouns. The placement of adverbs is a somewhat complicated matter, but I'm not aware that they are placed with respect to any noun. They usually are placed either after the first conjugated verb or at the beginning or end of the sentence.
