the noise is coming from the air cleaner housing, and for the first time I try to clean the IAC. but again the noise still there

The problem you are having was a known problem and back then Mazda came up with an updated IAC , the part number for it was GY0120660B. Mazda called for replacing the IAC with the updated IAC and at the same time cleaning the throttle body up real well with some carb cleaner and a soft cloth. I would start with doing this .

what is the best things to do to eliminate the noise in the air cleaner housing and irregularity of idle air control

The best thing to do is replace the IAC with the new updated IAC from Mazda as well as clean the throttle body up really well. The part number for the new updated IAC is GY0120660B. Doing so should solve this noise for you.
