(1999 pontiac grand prix 3100 v6) when I turn my wheel, rather left or right I hear a moaning. Noise and its very annoying, help me!

Check the power steering fluid, have a helper turn the wheel and look under the hood and see if the power steering pump is making noise, check the P/S belt to make sure it's tight.

When i go around corners i hear a squealing noise for a couple of seconds comming from the brakes

Generally this means that your brake pads have worn down and need to be replaced. The pads are equipped with"squealers". They let you know when they need to be replaced. You should also be hearing the noise when you apply the brakes.

How to determine weather it is the power steering pump, or hose?

power steering will make a buzz nosie and it will get worse when the steering wheel is turned. It usually is just low n power steering fluid. Check that first. The other is a belt squeal noise, worse when turning, which usually just requires tightening unless it's self tensioning syste. Or replace the belt. Need a better description of the nosie and results of fluid level check. Report back on findings.
