May have bad plugs & wires, sounds like a miss. Should get it scanned for the codes, and post back here.

Sounds like the torque converter maybe trying to lockup when it is not suppose to. Better get it checked out, if it does lockup then you won't be able to get it to move in drive or reverse under it's own power.

Sounds like a throttle position sensor issue to me. But what do I know I'm just a mechanic. Any codes?
