In regards to your timing belt being replaced, it's best that you have it done per manufacturers specifications.
As for your misfiring, there are many factors that can cause this issue. If you are mechanically inclined, I recommend you begin a compression test and cylinder leakage test. One of these tests will help you determine if you have a bad / bend valve.

both battery terminals-- replace with full brass ones

alternator should have come first then battery

if a new alternator was fitted wont be the problem
if a refurbished/rebuilt alternator was fitted
they have a failure rate

whats left
could be a parasitic draw from the ignition or starter motor wirings
check 12 volts is getting from positive battery terminal to starter motor

replacing computer was a wasted brain frt idea

You will need help, or you will need to be extremely careful, And you are on your own. If I was required to do this, I would get as close as I can physically to the alarm system inside the car, wherever the control box is located. Then, being very close I would take a picture of where I see wires on the control box. Then, I would look at both the fuse box, and under the hood (where the engine and battery are) for the same color wires. One of those wires is the DC voltage power wire. Disconnect that. You are on your own. You alone are responsible. If you are not an adult, talk to an adult.

The hatchback vehicle and similar has an inherent problem that has been increasing since the rear screen wiper was first fitted to them. Wires must pass from the vehicle body into the tailgate and at this point the wires flex every time the hatch is opened and closed. Standard wiring is not designed to flex so much, so often, for so long and in such a wide temperature spread yet the vehicle manufacturers use standard cable rather than "extra flexible wire" and arctic rated insulation so it isn't surprising to sometimes find one or more wires at or near that stress point have broken. Usually this isn't a great problem or inconvenience - except when the vehicle has an electric tailgate release and that is the wire that has broken..

The fault with your tailgate could be a lack of supply from the front or a break anywhere in the supply or a faulty release switch or even the release mechanism itself but apart from checking the fuses there are few practical steps to take until the tailgate is open.

I have so far been called upon to open two such tailgates and not being a car thief or a locksmith I know only one way and that is to climb inside the luggage space and to do whatever it takes to remove the interior trim panel from the tailgate. It was then relatively easy to disconnect the release and apply 12 volts to the exposed terminals via a pair of probes and I was lucky and the lock instantly released. One needed a new push button and the other a wiring repair.

Go under the hood and check for loose connections, something is loose that is for sure.
