Between slow spool, no boost, black soot, rattle, and white smoke it sounds like your turbos are done. Hard to say for sure without seeing/hearing the car in person or more data, though.

How do the turbos sound? Can you hear them? Might not be as easy to tell without intakes and ***.

Anyways, I went through a few sets of OEM turbos and can't say I ever noticed any of the idle, exhaust sound, or other symptoms you're mentioning. That's my only hesiation to turbos and wondering if there's another issue or a combination of things.
