Use some carburetor cleaner at throttle body, sometimes sticky substance builds up at this location.

Replace the accelerator cable since it is worn and sticking. It will loosen up as you say altough someday it will jamb up while your driving it which will be a dissater in most cases

1994 Chevy Suburban 5.7L V8 is making loud squealing/screeching noises when accelerating, only when foot on gas pedal, increasing with speed, and stopping before 20 mph. Initially the sound made me think...

This problem sounds more like your serpentine belt is loose or has become glazed. When you accelerate, the belt can't keep up with the torque of the flywheel pulley due to the drag of the accessories, resulting in a squealing and/or chirping of the belt as it slips on the pulley. This is amplified during turns due to the extra drag of a laboring power steering pump. Try going to your auto-parts store and picking up a bottle of belt dressing, about a buck a bottle. Apply this to your belt according to the instructions on the bottle. This should help your belt regain its "stickiness" if it is indeed glazed. If this doesn't solve your problem, a new belt may be in order. Hope this helps out. If the problem persists after a new belt, reply to this answer and we can dig a little deeper. Have a great day!

You should clean the throttle body assembly and if necessary lubricate the accelerator linkage with a spray lubricant, or in a pinch, WD-40

1998 suburban runs terribly when it is damp outside during and after a rain. Also runs bad in warmertemps at initial start. Today and on other occasions I have heard what sounds like a popping sound around...

Sounds like a good place to start would be a new set of plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, depending on what ignition system you have, plugs too, if not done recently.
