Ok start by unplugging the ac compressor if the noise is still present then I would remove the serpentine belt and look at the pulley grooves and look for debris if you see and type of debris in the groove then i would clean them out

Only you could tell for sure, but try this-remove the belt and turn the compressor pulley by hand-is it real tight, lots of drag? there should be virtually no drag, if there is that is your problem-while it is off, check the other pulleys as well, all should turn easily except for the crank pulley, of course-check the water pump, alternator, power steering and if it has an air pump, check it too.

First try to see when the belt is off if any pulley has a slight drag to it.But its possible that the belt might not have enough tension.

Air conditioner

The squeeling is the belt because the air compresor is likely seizing. At idle it can't turn the compressor, in motionthe compressor probably turns and cools the air. Most air conditioners come on when the defroster is on.

I have a 1995 dakota sport v-6 that keeps cutting about then first quarter inch off of the serpintine belti replaced the idler assembly and pully but it still eats beltsit looks like the belt is slipping...

There is something out of alignment. look at all the pullies with belt on and engine running. use a strong flashlight to see. they all should be in alignment. if any of them are out even a little replace them. including altenator, power steering pump, a/c
