Time to go to a real mechanic.

There may well be a device to increase the idle speed when the aircon is turned on and that is failing.

Check for vacuum leaks. Take the car to a mechanic and have a smoke check done on the car.

The first thing is this - do not guess on this type of issue, you need a proper diagnostics done.
Not the guess and throw parts at it and hope that works, which is what 90% of mechanics do.
I get it they are busy, but a proper diagnosis saves all parties time, money, and solves the problem without multiple re-works and customer complaints.
What can you do - 1. carefully inspect all vacuum hose lines. Maybe just replace them all. I had a vacuum leak on an old Audi. I just bought a full replacement kit. It was easier then doing them one at a time as they failed, and the hoses are 15 years old, so probably due anyway. Replace them ONE at a time to avoid confusion on which hose goes where. I had some thin plastic hose connects, like thin straws. I just bought extra hose and barbed connectors and replace those with hose. The plastic will break when you pull the hose off. Get some colored silicon hoses, they look cool.
2. Carefully inspect the air intake system. Old age and Bad motor mounts cause excessive engine movement and can cause wear to air intake system. I had Neon where the bad motor mounts caused the air intake hose to crack and an AC hose was rubbing against the radiator and it failed.
Look for cracks and loose connections. You may need to take any plastic hose off. Check air filter and air filter box. Is is sealed properly or cracked?
3. Have exhaust inspected for leaks. Try to get a proper smoke test done, but most muffler shops do not know how to do a proper smoke test, they just listen for noise, or say they did a smoke test but did not.
Beyond those basics, a TSB is listed below.

I've dealt with some odd issues that are caused by bad grounds. I recall several grounds on a bolt behind the left headlight causing some goofy stuff on two of those cars. Remove, clean to bare metal and reattach. Worth a try and it's free.

It's likely that some part of the air conditioning system uses vacuum and has a leak.
