Sounds to me like the only problem you have is the idle screw needs to be turned in a few turns. Not the mixture screw, the idle adjustment screw on the throttle body.

If the belt squealed, that means it was slipping. Either too loose or covered with something slippery. Loosening it more made the noise go away because it prolly got so loose it didn't generate enough friction to make noise any more.
The proper adjustment is listed in the manuals, basically it should be tight. If you push on the belt and you can move it more than about 1/2" with one finger, it is too loose. that could explain the alternator thing.
