Can I replace that A/C compressor clutch with myself. Which part exactly? Do I need to buy these both parts at following link or just one? http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php?carcod... If I don't fix this problem, can it cause any major problem? Thanks

You can get the clutch, with the coil and plate, but it requires special tools to remove and install it, and you need to know hot to adjust the clutch properly. In my opinion, it's best to replace the entire compressor, in the end it's not much more money and you get a new compressor.
Sometimes A metal part is loose from AC where connected with timing belt makes noise when touch each other. Like "tingli tingli tingli" Sometimes it happens really loud. Thanks
