Default Puppy with some problems

Have a 10 week old pup, (pomeranian/chiauau mix). Having a couple issues with him. First off, he seems to have constant diarrhea. We brought him home last weekend, and the breeder had given us some Pride dog food, but said his normal was Bil Jac. He stayed on Pride all weekend, but went back to bil jac after that. Its a 6 days later and he is still having runny stool. It has gotten worse since yesterday but I believe that is because of dog treats we bought him (Milkbone dog treats for training). This alone wouldnt be to bad but this puppy also is practicing coprophagia (stool eating), which is making things 10 times worse. Finally, he will not relieve himself in the designated place. I will pick him up a second before he starts to eliminate, carry him to the right place and sit him down. Then proceed to stand there for 15 minutes while we look at each other. The moment I let him out of the bathroom though, he goes and relieves himself on the carpet. I have tried praise, I have tried treats. The only thing I haven't tried is the old method of punishing when the puppy uses the bathroom in the wrong place. I don't expect perfection from a 10 wk old, but it seems like he would have used the bathroom in the right place by accident at least once now.

Can anyone lend some advice? Paper training this dog is driving me crazy.
