SOURCE: low idle stalls out
Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls at stops and low erratic idle speed and rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

My 97 Tarago did the same. Found it was a sensor near the air intake area, quite accessible under the passenger seat. It connects via a bulbuous screw in unit [valve]to the metal work of the engine with a tube to a small filter then connects to an electronic sensor. Unscrew the valve, disconnect from the sensor, and wash out the small hoses filter and valve with some fuel, Dry out reconnect and you will get your acceleration back. If anyone can help with the name of this unit, it would be easier to explain. Good Luck

It is actually hard to say without actually seeing the vehicle, but the target speed for your engine idle is around 750 RPM. The stalling after revving kind of depends on how high you are revving it and whether the engine is at operating temperature or not. This may be normal. Then again, it could be that the Idle Air Control (IAC) is not working properly.
The shifting from first to second at 4000 RPM sounds like a completely separate problem. This could be due to low transmission fluid level, sticking shift control solenoids, or possibly even a malfunctioning Vehicle Speed Sensor.
If the Check Engine light is on, have that checked first.
