On the pulleys, the serpentine belt, the one that goes around power steering and crank shaft pully. I believe that on crank shaft pulley there should be two pulleys or space for two belts, but it looks like one of the two somehow is pushed back or something, because I can only put on the belt that goes around A/C and alternator, it keeps breaking. So, are there two pulleys on the crank shaft or somewhere else that I need to replace? Please send pictures.

Yes there are two pulleys check out this guide which can help you see how the belts are suppose to go.

If this looks correct but the belts still don't line up you could have a balancer that is coming apart which will allow the belt grooves to "walk" backwards toward the engine. Try to get a slight down the pullies to the drive pulley to see if this could be a possibility. If so the balancer will need to be replaced. This video will show the job being down on a similar car.
