After trying to spray some (BRITE LIGHT) into my entire engine compartment to clean some oil residue, Now wroke-up the next morning with a loud noise from the Timing belt, which cause now both: (Brake parking/Battery light come on together and makes my needle goes higher like the car is overheated. But the thing is: those 2 lights keeps going off everytime I pull off to a complete stop but come back everytime I step on the gas pedal to move. If I turn AC on, lights goes off.

I don't think all those things are related. For the brake light thing, check the brake fluid level. It sounds like the fluid is swishing around causing the float switch to turn off and on.

As for your overheating and timing belt problem, stop driving it immediately. You may have a water pump or something letting go but this is an interference engine so if it jumps time while your driving it, it could bend all the valves.
