Fuses, and make sure you got all of the wires hooked to the alternator, and that they aren't burn't. Some older vehicles had "fusible links" which is a wire that opens when the load is too great. It's like a fuse.

If the battery has been overcharged then the cells will be damaged . Have a load test done on the battery to confirm failure and if so then get a new battery.. have the alternator checked at the same time because there is a possibility that the regulator in the alternator has been also damaged allowing over charging of the battery. By having incorrectly connected the jumper leads then you may have also damaged the cpu unit of the engine management box. Best have an autro electrician look at it .
Now if your old fuel pump was loosing pressure it tends to lean out
Overheating your catalytic converter and melting it so exhaust gasses can't flow
To test this is easy just remove the two bolts holding it on the engine pipe
Start the engine if runs fine replace cat converter
Check cable between engine/gearbox and chasis, or bypass this cable during jump starting,by putting the - jump cable on the engine, if it starts your cable between engine and chasis has a bad connection.
