With all of the lug nuts OFF, kick the very bottom of the tire. BE CAREFUL!
Kicking the bottom of the tire should pop the tire off. If not, try using more leverage to pry it off.

If you think they need to be replaced, have them inspected. If your hoses have cracks, or are dry rotted, then you need to replace them.

The vibration problem is caused by faulty rotors. Having your disks (rotors) milled will fix this problem.

You most likely need a new fuel pump, even if it does come on. If you are sure it comes on but isnt delivering fuel, then it just cannot simply make enough pressure.

All coolants are very similar. If your owners manual says use dex-cool then use it. If it does not specify, you are safe to use any type of coolant. I recommend buying a premixed 50/50 solution.

If your alternator is accessible without having to remove other parts, then this is usually simple to do so for a mechanically knowledgeable person. You will need just a few simple tools (screw driver, socket set, etc..).
When you get it off after loosening the belt, make sure you get the belt tension to the correct spot. You should purchase or rent a Haynes or Chilton manual for further details.
