I have never tried, but to get Squid running behind Socks you need to
socksify it. How to socksify a application is documented in the Socks

If you have socks5 installed it might be as simple as starting squid by
using the runsocks command (a wrapper that tries to do a runtime
socksification of any program).

The socks support is outside squid (in the socks library). All
configuration needed should be in the socks configuration files.
