Default Hyundai 2001 Accent Manual, Hatchback A/C issues?

I just got back from college about a month ago and I left my car home since were not allowed to bring them to campus while were freshman. At first my car was running fine, like nothing was wrong, but then it started getting hot out so, naturally, i turned on my a/c. The a/c worked, but there was rattling around somewhere in there, which everyone convinced me were just acorns that sneaked in there while i was away. The more powerful i turned the a/c on, the more noise it made. on 1 it was fine, just a little rattling when you turned it on. at 4 (the highest) it would rattle and make a very low humming sound that shook the car (like i was at the movie theatre and the sound was very loud). also, whenever i turned the car on, it would make a loud screeching moise in the first few gears(1&2, sometimes 3) but fine in 4th and fifth. a few weeks after this started, (present day) i dont turn the a/c on because it doesnt blow out of the vent, and a burnt rubbery/vaccuum cleaner smell comes out.

I just bough a new alternator a few weeks ago along with a 2 belts (for what i dont know. al li know is that one was for the engine nd one was for the a/c)

my uncles are mechanics, but id love to just get a few opinions so i can kind of walk in there with an idea of what may be going on, so we dont have to start completely from scratch diagnosing the issue Thank you!! All feedback is appreciated!!
