From your description this appears to be a Brake servo issue.
The brakes are assisted by a vacuum created from the draw off the inlet manifold, it gives assistance too the brake pedal pressure by a large tank/cylinder mounted on the Bulkhead/firewall.
I feel that the sound you a hearing is air being draw into the Brake Servo from the foot pedal seal and the reason for fluctuation in the engine is the vacuum from the inlet manifold is being upset.
Attention I suspect should be addressed to the Brake servo/pedal seal or gaitor.
I hope this clarifies your thoughts?
Please remember to rate my effort.

When you press on the brake? Have your brake vacuum assist checked. It,s that bigspaceship looking thing between the brake master cylinder an firewall. good luck and be safe.

That sound you hear is coming from the Vauum Brake Booster...Sooner or later the Brake Pedal will get hard, because the seal inside of the Brake Booster is leaking..And the only way to repair it, is , to replace the Brake Booster...But also check your Vacuum Hose that is instaaled on your Brake Booster..It goes from the Brake Booster, which is behind the Master Cylinder...From there to the Intake Manifold...Just make sure that there are no cracks in that hose, and make sure it is on all the way...because if the hose is bad, then thats all you will have to replace....Goodluck...

The clicking and popping sound like a problem with the CV joints. The best repair for this is to replace the CV half-shafts. The brake noise may or may not be related to this issue. If the noise is coming from the front, it could be that you need new brake pads, or that the rotors need to be resurfaced, or the brakes may need some other adjustment. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may need new brake shoes, or the drums need to be resurfaced, or there could be another issue. Have the brakes checked out when the CV axles are replaced.
If you need more help with these issues or if you have any more questions just let me know.
