Kinda crazy, but somehow they let me stay

While I do agree, I still would not do that then. I would just notify animal control and let them handle it. It is a very kind thing for @biofish to do but I would be looking at all the risks.Street animals are hardier and more resourceful than you give them credit for. OP here is trying to do something very noble, and trapping a kitten in a ventilated garage for a few hours won't kill it any more than it being outside exposed to any other feral or wild animals.
You won't get many shots at this though, if the trap fails, set it up again. If you try to chase it or corner it amd fail you'll get a good scratching and the kitten won't approach you again at all
So my vote goes to either immediately taking the kitten to a shelter or notifying proper authorities.
