SOURCE: I have a 1998 Buick Lesabre that keeps losing antifreeze.

Buick 3.8's are notorious for intake manifold leaks. If you are sure you are not leaking externally (look under the alternator and on the top of the transmission), it could be an intake manifold leak. I've replaced mine...I didn't think it was too hard a job for an amateur.
It could also be a head gasket, but the intake leaks are much more common.

You can't adjust the timing chain and I doubt it has anything to do with your car "creeping."

1997 Buick will not start

coil pack played out, or timing chain jumped. Use a timing light to see if you have spark. If you haven't, change the coil pack. If you have spark, then check the timing chain. When you aim your timing light at the timing mark, if it's jumping all over the place, you need a timing chain. If that all checks out, you may have a fuel problem. See if you can hear the fuel pump running for a few seconds when you turn the key to the "on" position. If you can hear it, check and change the fuel filter. Let me know how it goes.

I have a 2002 Buick LeSabre. I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it, but when I switch the gears, the car will not move. And the wheels are also locked up.

suspect the transmission /a piled up chain will cause that..front wheel drives break chains inside , a common problem..

Timing Chain

If the car is driveable, your timing chain hasn't broken into pieces. If it had, your car wouldn't run, period. Something else has caused whatever issues you have - what is the car doing that suggests a problem?
