Why would a 2000 Kia Sephia idle hard when the air conditioner is on but idle fine otherwise?

An A/C compressor takes about 6 horsepower to turn it and when an engine is idleing, it is producing about 30 hp so when you take away 6 hp from 30, it puts quite a load on it. There is also a device which increases the idle speed when the A/C is switched on. If this is not working or the idle is set too low then rough idle may occur.

Yes, a 4.5 ton air conditioner would be the minimum size for 2000 square feet.
