The cam syncro will cause that noise . Listen for the noise near the back of the intake . I have replaced alot of them after someone else replaced the belt and pulleys for the noise. Good luck.

Most likely Idle air control valve fault. Usually wont set a code unless it has a short or unplugged. There are some test that can be performed with a high end scanner but with out the data not much you can do.

When the belts age they dryrot like tires, Twist the belt upside down and bend slightly, You will likely see cracks, Just replace the belt and you should be good to go

YES. Very common problem. The cam sensor driver unit goes bad. (Usually called a "Cam Syncronizer") Squeeks like crazy, causes hard starts, poor fuel mileage, usually destroys the cam sensor itself, and will cause catalytic converter damage if not fixed promptly. (You will find broken, rusted pieces inside the assembly if you take the sensor off of the top)
Complete kits (Made by Dorman) are available at most parts retailers. It will look similar to this:
It should be noted that although this part is relatively easy to replace, it can also be very easy to install it incorrectly. Proper alignment (Syncronization) should be checked using a scan tool after installation.
