The alternator is belt driven and so is the water pump but that is where the correlation ends. There is no way a bad alternator could cause a water pump to go bad unless the alternator pulley was warped. Then there is a small chance.

A bad alternator will cause a battery to go bad. It does not have an effect on the air conditioner.

Yes, those exhaust gases are extremely hot and can cause the alternator to overheat. Not only that but that carbon monoxide can enter the vehicle and kill you.

If your battery is not fully functioning and needs to be replaced, it can make the alternator work harder. This could cause a brand new alternator to go bad. Check your battery, if the battery is not the issue, return the alternator, it should have a warranty on it for at least the first 30 days.
