I have removed the front seats in both my 2000, and 2001 Aleros. The problem is that they do not sit properly as far as the front is concerned so they rock forward to back a bit and make noise. How do I properly re-install the front seats.

I had the same problem on our 2003 sedona. Turned out one of the wires in the driver's seat belt is infamous for going bad and the repair is usually replacing the seat belt. I would have thought they would have cured that by now.
Okay....I have been working on my boss' car for a week with this SAME issue....first....try to figure out the spot it is coming from. This part is the pain. Second, have a can of WD-40 and spray it into any joint you find. This squeek could be from an upper bushing, a lower bushing, an A arm bushing, or any other bushing on that side....so start out with this method first because it will only cost you a few dollars, or free if you have it already. But do one at a time till you find it. Then, you'll know what item to replace.
I agree. Replace the battery first. It's under the back seat, which will lift up after undoing two screws in the front of the bottom of the seat. Remove negative terminal, remove positive terminal, lift old battery out, put in new one, attach positive terminal, attach negative terminal, reinstall seat, and you're done.
If that's not the issue, you may need to replace the alternator.
Go to the auto parts store and ask for advice (They are usually very helpful especially Advanced Auto Parts) or purchase a can of dw40 or similar lubricating product and spray the seat metal joints under the seat.
As to the window, if it's squeaking where the glass meets the rubber spray the rubber or treat it with armor all.
