I would just tell him if he throws toys, he will lose them for a specific amount of time. Maybe an hour or so and when you give it back, tell him not to throw it because if he does, you will take it away again.
I don't remember if 16 months is too early for time outs but you could try them. If he hits, tell him no and put him in time out for a minute. Make sure he stays the whole time and when he gets out, tell him hitting is not okay and it hurts. If he's going to hit, he will have to go in time out.
With yelling, I don't listen to my kids when they yell. I tell them if you have something to say to me, you say it nicely or I'm not listening.
