I am 99% positive that your Malibu does not have a cam belt, but instead has a cam chain. Look in your owner's manual or call your local Chevy dealer to be 100% sure.
Yes, there are bleeder valves for cooling systems for 99 Malibu.
Loosen the bolts on the pump to allow the belt to lose tension. Remove the belt, then put on the new belt. Pull the pump to tighten the belt snug but not over tight while tightening the bolts.
To check the fan relays on the 99 Malibu, you can swap the relay between the AC blower and the fan.

On top of the engine there is a serpentine belt (5 grooves). The tension is autmatically set by the belt tensioner. It is an arm with a pulley on the end of it. The other end has a 3/8 inch connector for a ratchet. Put a ratchet on the end of it and pull it towards you. This should relieve the tension enough to take the belt off the pulleys.
