Your engine mount/mounts are probably gone bad. try to jack up you engine ( put a piece of wood or something like that between the jack and the oil/transmission pan) and check if the engine mount moves too much. if it moves up and down or from side to side on the mounting bolts then tie the bolts down. if the rubber piece moves all over the place than you need to replace the mount/mounts.

Location of grounding strap 2004 sunfire?

The main ground runs from the battery to the starter and there are many ground wires throughout the vehicle,but I don't thing this will be a ground issue as the alternator is grounded by the bolts holding it mounted to the engine.It is more likely the internal regulator in the alternator failing in my opinion.

Yes. It's always good to fill the filter prior to installing. Also try to lubricate the oring on the filter prior to installing. Priming the filter aids in getting oil to upper end of engine.
