How can I use computers or turtles to check how many items and stacks are there in a barrel? (Is there any way even?)

There is no practical way to count the number of items in a barrel using computercraft.
The only way to interact with a barrel (via computercraft) at all is to use a turtle and the only way that a turtle can interact with a barrel is to insert/pull out single stacks of items at a time. This is impractical as a method to count the contents of a barrel as a turtle only has 16 inventory slots available.
Mods like OpenPeipheral will help you as all they tell ComputerCraft that all containers(Chest, furnace, Anything that stores items) are peripherals. What you can do is
barrel = peripheral.wrap("left") print(barrel.listMethods())-- see all the methods and find the one you need. print(barrel.theMethod())
im using Jabba, and what i did was make it detect weather or not slot 1 had more then 1 cobble, and such it would stop.
while true do if turtle.getItemCount(1) > 2 then else turtle.dig() turtle.dropDown() end end
the barrel would of course be below the turtle, and when its full the cobble would stack to 2 in the turtle and it would stop.
