the AC Compressor is making a ton of noise, may have something to with the bearing or clutch... Wondering if I can just snip the belt off but not sure if the belt powers anything else

You can't. You have one serpentine belt that runs all the accessories. See if you can get a used compressor.

If that is all the belt drives you can cut it off, but if it drives other components then you can't. Check with your local part store to see if there is a belt for a non A/C unit if the belt drives more than the A/C, then you can remove the clutch and replace it at your leisure.

It looks like there are two serpentine belts, I cant tell if the other belt runs only the ac compressor or not

Get a good strong light and look closely, follow the belt all the way around, that way you will know for sure it only drives the A/C compressor.
