Recently i played someone who occasionally stamped loudly on one step of their movement back to the T as i was about to hit the ball, to me it seemed to be an attempt to distract me, what are the specific rules and conventions on this sort of thing?

See rule 13.1.3. Depending on whether he is doing it intentionally and how loud it is relative to the normal noises of squash, it sounds like you may or may not be allowed a let. I once had a distraction let called against me (and allowed!) when my racket hit the glass back wall during a tight dig and made a loud noise, even though I hit a good return. My open argued he though he heard the door slam shut, or something like that. I still think that wasn't a let, by the way! I saw Jonathon Power call a let during the Tournament of Champions when he said a dog barking distracted him. Imagine that -- they are playing in Grand Central with thousand of people catching trains and he calls a let because he heard a dog bark. Anyway that was allowed, too. Silly.
