Answer: 
Basically, but sheaves are for "V" belts only and pulleys can be for "V" belts and to run ropes through.

Answer: 
A sheave transmits force/motion along the side (the V) if you see wear along the bottom of a sheave it needs to be replaced. A pulley transmits power/motion along the bottom and not the sides.

Speed of Driven Pulley
n2 = d1 n1 / d2
n2 = speed of driven pulley (rpm - rounds per minute)
d1 = driving pulley diameter (inch, mm)
n1 = speed of driving pulley (rpm - rounds per minute) also known as the motor RPM.
d2 = driven pulley diameter (inch, mm)

Answer: 
It is a ratio in size between your driving and driven pulley/sheave. You need to know the size and RPM of your Drive, then depending on your driven size you can figure RPM. EX.

Drive 2" @ 1000 RPm
Driven 1" @ 2000 RPm
Driven 3" @ 500 RPm

As you can see if your driven pulley is smaller in O.D than your Drive you will turn at higher RPM, and the other way. Different drives (Chain, V-Belt, timing belt) will all have different amount of slip factors and caculations will not always be spot on but should get you close.

Answers

Answer: 
Grainger has contacted the product supplier and has been advised by them of the
following:
Grainger does not offer the drive pulleys for this application. It may be in your best interest to contact a Chrysler parts department and inquire if the part numbers are the same, or different for the turbo option versus the non turbo engine. There may also be forums on the internet that offer advice based on already having completed or attempted this task.

The end of the 1/2" electric motor shaft is a rectangle with a threaded bolt hole for attaching a pulley (not a key slot or taper). What is the name of this attachment method that I can use to search for a pulley?

That is an OEM unique feature for that motor. There are no standards for it and maybe no specific name for it. We have pulleys for standard round shaft motors.
