When I have my alero on cruise control and we’re going up even the slightest incline, the RPMs will shoot up. Then, even after we get on a flatter section of road where my car is supposed to downshift, it stays around 4500 and doesn’t go down until I cancel the cruise control.

You should have someone drive your vehicle where they can have the problem show up while they are scanning your transmission. It sounds like your problem is going to be in the transmission to me. The cruise control just tries to hold the speed so it appears to be working. Or is it? you didn't say if the cruise control keeps it's speed up.
