You will probably find that the bearings in the air con compressor r cactus! The compressor is probably seized, thus cant have a belt running the pulley. Squeeling is probably due to your sticking calliper(s).
Are both rear brakes dragging? If so, your handbrake cable maybe frayed and binding in which case, do what donuts said. If its only 1 side dragging then id opt for a new calliper as the piston is seized.

89 EA1 3.9L TBI Falcon Sedan with 3 speed auto / currently being upgraded...
The wheels sound like Gold Snowflakes to me.
Id say the belt was left off the Aircon so they could say "as far as we know thats all it needs" to cover there arses when it doesnt!
Id have the cooling system flushed asap, you may have replaced the radiator but theres bound to be some shit left in the system!
The high pitched rattle could be a wheel bearing.
Congrats on the purchase. When my EA had an awful noise from the back, it was from the self-levelling suspension. If the rear suspension is also sagging constantly, I'd be confident that is the problem.
