I suspect the front rotors (or maybe rear, but likely front) are warped. it is custom to replace pads and rotors to cure problem. would also ck calipers and pad slides to make sure there not sticking.
oil leaks happen in many places on an engine. typical places for these cars is valve cover gasket, oil pressure switch, and timing cover gasket. but there are many other possibilities

Started out with me having my foot on the break and the gear in drive and it started kind of shaking. Then when I was driving home I stopped at a stop sign and the car just completely died. Any idea what...

if your car starts to run rough or dies when you apply the brakes this is an indicator that you have a vacum leak. air assisted brakes use alot vacum so when they are applied with one of the hoses off it causes problems. had anything checked under your hood recently? oil? tranny fluid? air filter? it doesnt take much to dislodge an old and worn or poorly installed vacum hose.

My car dies when it get warm?

sounds like a your tie rod ends or ball joints are bad. as far as it turning off in gear means that the fuel injection is screwed up which means its a gas problem which is a intake problem with wrong fuel mixture or even a vacuum leak.

Nissan altima 2002 burning excesive oil what to

You have to identify where the oil is leaking. Check the spark plugs if it has oil, you may just need to replace the oil seal in the plugs. If you meant actual burning from the exhaust, you may want to check the head gasket and the piston rings if the oil seeps into the combustion chamber.
