I crossed the cable wires wrong nd now the car dies wen I drive for a min and then after it won't start cuz the battery fully dead would it be the wires from the battery to the alternator that may had burned cuz smoke came out from the bottom of the left side of the car

Check where i've pointed out in arrows for fuses an dfusiblelink in both charts. You will be lucky if no electronics have been damaged. And charge battery if it will take a charge. It may be shot.

Yup most of it is in the power dist center except for the fusible links. They may run off starter or power dist center.
