You have 2 seperate issues going on. The throttle might be the throttle linkage, or the throttle body itself. maybe even the Throttle position sensor. Have it looked at it determine what the issue is. The brake pedal being hard can be more than one issue as well....http://www.diybuildingandrepairs.com/auto-repairs/hard-brake-pedal.html.....I suggest you take your car into a local mechanic ASAP to get these problems sorted out, it is very unsafe to drive at the moment, for you and other drivers.
