The comment by Bunnydawg could be close to a solution. It sounds like a defective, bent or out of adjustment brake light switch. Up high on the brake pedal there is a tab that acuates a switch to turn the brake lights on and this button also allows you to shift out of park. If its only out of adjustment most styles are a threaded barrel with a set and lock nut. Simply loosen the lock nut and thread the cylinder closer to the pedal and reset the lock nut.

You likely have a broken wiring harness at the brake light switch connector under the dash above the brake pedal. You can buy a replacement stub harness from Ford parts.

Gear Shift very hard to put into park

this usually happens when you are on a tilt with the car, ive got a 93 taurus gl 3.0 and whenever im on a slant, it is extremely hard to shift in or out of park, you really have to give it some muscle and it will go, its just the way the car is i dont think there is a legitimate fix for it.
