I've killed 3 squirrels by treeing them and then throwing rocks at them to knock them out and then kicking their head. I haven't gotten a single leather from them. I used a broad knife to skin them. Idk if it's the tool I'm using or the hunting method I use to kill them or what.

In the [H]ideworking menu, you have to select the option to de-hair a furry skin. Keep in mind that squirrel leather won't have as high a trading value as squirrel furs and it will take a while to amass enough hides to make leather clothes.

No like all I get is meat and fat. No fur or skin at all.

In order to get skins, you need to do it from the hideworking menu before you start butchering.

Also, if the corpse is described as "grisly" you wont get a hide regardless.

It's very true. However, thrown rocks should result in a carcass that can be skinned. However, there's a setting to give you a warning if you try to butcher a carcass that can be skinned.
