So I adjusted the Custom Function settings in the dial, and then I noticed that my Autofocus is now controlled by the CF button. I am using a Canon EOS 50, a 1995 film camera (not 50D).

How do I turn off that Custom Function and go back to the normal autofocus behavior (a slight press on the shutter button adjusts the autofocus)

It sounds like you've changed the value for custom function 4 to "1" instead of "0".

To change them, you should turn the command dial to CF, then turn the main dial to the relevant position, before pressing the */CF button to change the value -- then the */CF button should behave as exposure lock again in normal shooting.
