WHY ARE YOU YELLING? Sounds like two simple problems with simple fixes. First of all you have a misfire causing the shaking. Of course the transmission won't shift right if you have to press the gas pedal further than normal to get the car going.
If the car was sitting, the battery was disconnected or run dead. The Engine Computer has to relearn "minimum throttle" before it will know when it has to be in control of idle speed. Until then, it will be too low and the engine will stall at stop signs unless you hold the gas pedal down a little. To meet the conditions for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the brake or gas pedals.
