IF the starter works, you have spark and fuel, then either the timing is out, the spark is too weak, the fuel pressure is too low, or there is very low engine compression. Is the spark a hot blue snapping spark? Have you checked fuel pressure?

Many of the nationally recognized parts stores will lend or rent the tools you need. Try contacting one of them.

Glad it's running. Check to make sure there are no disconnected or damaged vacuum hoses. That could cause the rough idle.
