It sounds like your power steering pump as you said, but I would start with changing the main drive belt. I have come across this same problem before. If you change out the belt and you still have this problem, remove the belt and start the engine. Turn the wheels left and right and listen for the noise. If the noise is gone then put the belt back on and check again. If the noise comes back then you have a component problem. I have seen the belt tensioner to make noises as you describe. I hope this helps you. Let me know if this is helpful to you.

change the drive belt on the car if the car has over 40,000 miles and while you have the belt off have the alternator tested as while as the battery you may just have a bad cell in the battery

You can unplug it right at the pump...the only problem is that the rear end is going ride low and you will notice a steering power, and some bottoming out in the rear. The best thing to do is see if that shocks themself might be leaking and replace them if they are since eventually this will damage the pump. Sometimes it will just blow the fuse, which brings me to my next point...you could just pull the fuse in the fuse box to shut it off.
