SOURCE: when the heater/air conditioner is turned on, one of the fan belt wheels begins to click and shift

I bet good money that it is a fan belt. But I advise you have it repaired immediately before it causes damage.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?

you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Rattling noise from heater core, even when heater is off

One of the heat transfer "fins" sounds like it has seperated from the tubes allowing it to rattle on you. Its a heat transfer deal that may cause a tink tink kind of sound as the heat makes it expand and cooling by way of air passing by it. You could replace it, or try to hold each fin and bend whatever one is making the noise.
