There is nothing to reset. You already reset the PCM back to factory settings when you disconnected the battery to replace it. Now you must drive the vehicle normally so it will relearn your driving habits, conditions you drive under, climate, etc.

The computer only resets when the battery is removed. The alternator just charges the battery, so if the battery is left connected when the alternator is replaced, the computer should not reset.
