You can replace the battery yourself. the only thing you may loose is the presets and the clock setting on the radio.

I just replaced my battery in my 2005 GMC Envoy and now whenever I turn my A/C on the car powers off.

The throttle body needs to be cleaned, grime in this area prevents the throttle plate from closing completely and allowing air to enter, making the air/fuel mixture lean. Before the battery replacement the PCM was compensating for the lean condition, but with battery power disconnected for a period of time, the PCM is now running with default setting until it relearns.

A technician will need to a parasitic drain test on the electrical system to determine where the battery drain is taking place. Sometimes the glovebox or vanity mirror lamps don't shut off and drain the battery.

{: ) There are shops that has these gadget to test the battery and charging systems at the same time. As of the time being, you can clean battery terminals for presence of corrosion, to have that clean tight connection to the battery. Check also your engine belt.
If you have a reliable digital multimeter, you can measure the charging voltage at the battery terminals when the engine starts to run. Should be around 13.8 to 14.5 volts depending on the loads that are on.
If the charging system seems to be okay, and you go for that new battery, check and observe again. If the same problem, you should have your vehicle tested for abnormal battery parasitic draw.

2005 GMC Envoy key is stuck in accessory position in the ignition with dead battery and transmission stuck in park. Will replacing battery help or is it security system lock down? If it is the security...

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

Check the Red wire going to the fuse block. If is nessesary
Go to the autopart and buy a test light.

OK.... I hope this can be a start prosses to fix your car.
