Man what a hard time you have had!
Before you can trouble shoot the possible bearing problem,your engine would need to be able to run.
Your engine will run with a bad alternator for awhile with a fully charged battery. This will allow you to have someone listen to the engine and evaluate the bearing nose.
A bearing rattle when you rev the engine up is usually a rod bearing.
A bearing rattle when you declerate is usually a main bearing.
I hope this has been some help.
It sounds like you might need a mechanic help you make some decisions
