There should not be any 'relearn' procedure from a simple mass air flow sensor cleaning.

Try this as the next step - disconnect the battery negative cable connection at the terminal for about 10-15 minutes, then re-connect.

This will reset all the adaptive strategies for the ECM / PCM - then drive like normal.

You broke the throttle body bolts? Not good. Take it in and hope they can fix your fix up. FYI. You dont have to remove a throttle body to clean it. And MAF sensor cleaning fluid is not throttle body cleaning. And Nissans just need to be driven to relearn their idle. They have always been like this.
