you need to have somebody look at it ---way to many possible problems ...it could be an eletrical conection at starter --which would kill engine while driving & do a clicking when attempting to start ---or a double problem -- or a big problem

Even with taking the serpentine belt off it will still be too hard to hand crank an engine, without also removing the spark plugs. Since you now know the battery is not at fault you'll have to look at the starter circuit and ignition circuit. Get a meter and do a voltage drop test to the starter at least then you'll know if proper voltage is reaching it, if it is then you'll want to do a bench test on the starter and solenoid. However a starter would not cause a car to stall, so you still have some troubleshooting to do.
