I have almost all the symptoms of endometriosis & my mother also had it. Is there any way i can be diagnosed without surgery? I don't have insurance

In brief: No

By definition you need surgery to get a diagnosis.
This is the dilemma, without treatment getting pregnant may be very difficult later.. And having endometriosis without treatment continuously gives you twice the risk of ovarian cancer. So treatment is important for pain, fertility, and health.
