Hi, well where to start. Yes you can splice the heater hose or pipe. But not the a/c.
A/c well you need to know the high side pressure and low side pressure, to know if the compressor is operateing normal. But most likely this is going to be a prob inside your heater box, ie. Blend air door is not opening to adjust from hot air to cool. If this is the case the a/c lines outside should be cold.
Engine hotter then normal. If your temp guage reads from 180-200 it is normal,
STEERING. The power steering line unless resavoir is low will not make noise.
More likely a steering rack causeing this, or the raxk rubbing on something, such as a rubber dust cover or piece of plastic.
BATT LIGHT. The bat light prob will be a prob down the road, this is an indication of a batt prob or an alt. This is a intermittant prob what is most likely going on is the internal voltage regulator inside the alternator is failing sometimes when it does the light will come on. And when it is not malfuntioning the light will be off. And no diagnostic machine will find a prob.
So as far as the alt if you are not leaveing town. Wait until the light comes on and stays on then replace. However if you are going a longer distance I would replace it first half the price at home, then on toll road. Hope this helps you thanks for asking 2carpros. Billymac
