Almost all modern vehicles have O2 sensors fitted to the exhaust system. Have you had the vehicle scanned with a diagnostic system or an OBD2 scanner to see which O2 sensor is faulty?
How many sensors that they fit depends on what type of engine is fitted. V6's and V8's usually have more than in-line engines do. Yours is an in-line 4 cylinder so
there will be 2 on yours.
They will be positioned before and after the catalytic converter, (sometimes called a Cat). The first will be either in the exhaust manifold or in the first short section of the exhaust. The second will be underneath the vehicle after the bulge of the Cat.

Do you have any warning lights on the dashboard? This could be one of many engine sensors on the fuel system. It could be anything from an O2 sensor to a throttle position sensor. You might need to have the vehicle plugged into a diagnostic system or an OBD2 scanner. This will give you trouble codes which are clues to the cause. This will cost money so shop around as the prices can be very different. If you comment below i'll try and help you work out what they mean.

Check with your Autoparts and see if they have a pully that replaces the A/C compressor

What is your question?

Long and short term fuel trim is the amount of deviation from the programmed expected values but I believe those values have little use by themselves and need to be interpreted by an experienced person in context with other information.
37.5 degrees of ignition advance means little alone - on the face of things seems rather excessive and would have been before the days of 3D mapped engine management by computer but lots of ignition advance at certain times is a large factor in 3D mapping and has a significant effect in increasing fuel economy and reducing exhaust emissions.

Could simply be trapped air. Turn the key from OFF to RUN then wait and listen. Dont try to start. You should hear the fuel pump (humming sound) run for a few seconds and then stop. If no humm, no pump, no fuel.

If you hear the fuel pump cycle on/off then turn key OFF and back to ON, wait for pump to cycle to off, and repeat a few more times. Then try to start.

If still no start, then the fuel system may need to be bled

If it needs rebuild..its bettr to git a jaspar w 100 000 mi warranty
