It is possible for the throttle plate to stick due to gunk but check if the throttle able had been misrouted while performing the alternator replacement. A misrouted accelerator would result in heavier throttle pressure.
To remove the air hose, you need to loosen the clip which is tightened with the aid of a screw at rear end if the positioniing is standard.
As the CEL is indicating, you need to get a scan done to retrieve the trouble code to understand what is wrong. Autozone provides free scanning services.
