Sounds like your tranny is on the way out. I had a similar problem with my '91 Legacy and it required a tranny rebuild (or a used replacement which would have cost about the same).
Check your tranny fluid level and condition. Be sure to check for leaks. If its very low or empty, or really dirty (it should look red/pink, not dark or smell "burned"), it may be that a fluid replacement may remedy the shifting issue. A friend of mine had tranny issues where it was stuck in first gear, and it turned out that he never changed the tranny fluid in almost 80K miles, and a tranny flush and fluid replacement at his local Jiffy Lube solved the problem. Who knows what his neglect cosy him in longevity through. 
Hope this helps.

Engine wont catch


Catch?
cranks fast
starts every time.
idles fine hot or cold , or both? hot idle not too fast.
i race engine , in park and neutral, I can hit 3500 rpm easy, can you.
i release brakes, (brakes are not packed in ICE , are they?)
I select 1gear or reverse (A/T or m/t)
the car moves or dont move, which is it, my guess catch = no move at all.
I try to drive, i look at RPM and MPH
RPM moves up and MPH track.
track means they both move in a linear progression.
RPM rises and for all RPM increases MPH also increases.
does it?
if all that works then we have an engine power issue.
weak on hills?

That sounds like either a wheel bearing or a busted belt in the tire. Move that tire to the front. If the sound moves, it is the tire, if the sound doesn't move, it is the wheel bearing.
