Check your Idle air control valve, sometimes it may not operate and cause a no start condition.

When I turn on my 2001 elantra air conditioning, it makes loud noises and it smells like somethings burning.

sounds like the a/c compressor maybe no good causing the noise and if the a/c clutch is not working right then this can be the smell.

2000 hyundai elantra inside room heat

Almost every car(including yours) has a flow through ventilation system which means even with the air turned off air will still come through the vents. Its hot because of outside temp and engine temp. 
Basically just push the recirculation button and it will stop.

Moldy smell coming from air conditioning in Volvo S40 2001

It is a mold smell, you will need to go to an AC shop or the dealer and have the AC ducting disinfected, they have a chemical treatment they can do, costs around $100 at most shops, takes about 1 hour plus the chemical. The chemical they use is similar to TYLEX, so if u have any serious allergies suggest u not do this, use Lysol, spray it into the AC air intake in front of the windshield, the AC needs to be set to outside air and be on high blower, use about 1/2 the can and then shut it down and let it set for an hour, then turn the system on hot and let it run for 10 minutes to evaporate the Lysol from the system, this is not a permanent fix, it will need to be done about once or twice a year, more in humid climates.
