There are several things that could cause this, the quickest way to find the problem is using a code reader. Under your dashboard, normally on the left side, there is a standardized connector made to plug a diagnostic reader into; it may have a plastic cover over it but the connector has a number of round pins recessed. The code reader is plugged into this and the device reads the static memory that records error messages generated by the computer using inputs from numerous sensors on your car. These are displayed on a small LCD and need to be noted so one can decode the numbers from a manual or installed software on a standard computer.
The code readers range in price from ~$30 to nearly $200 US and are available from any auto parts store or many stores on line.
If you have no urge to own one, any service shop will have them  and charge you a couple of bucks to retrieve your codes and translate them.

What could be wrong with my Toyota Echo if the engine chugs while idling, and the car loses power when accelerating (stalling out if accelerating too quickly)?


There are numerous things that will cause this problem. If the check engine light is on, have the codes checked to see if there is a problem the computer has found to cause this issue. Even without the check engine light on, there may be a code stored. You can also do a visual inspection under the hood for any disconnected hoses causing vacuum leaks. These are the best places to begin with diagnostics

Car is hard to start and when starts chugs and brake becomes hard to push


Sounds like bad vacuumed leak because of brake being hard.check that the hose from power brake diapham on fire wall to intake manifold in on not got a hole in it and if it seems ok pull hose off brake unit and plug and start.good luck.if that solves it replace brake booster.

If you mean the engine starts running rough at say 40 or 50 mph, once you go into overdrive the engine is working very hard and any weak component can show up. Could be spark plugs or other factors.
If the check engine light is on you need to have the computer checked for trouble codes to help narrow down the options.

Not to scare or offend you but it could be many many things. It does help that the check engine light is on, though.
If you can go to a place like Autozone, where they check your check engine light for free, and post what the code was, I can give you a place to start.
I do not mind helping you further with a proper diagnosis procedure either, if you can share your vehicle information.
