2000 Ford Taurus not getting gas

Sometimes when driving, the car feels like it isn't getting gas anymore. The car starts slowing down, no warning lights on the dash, I can mash down the gas pedal and the engine revs but doesn't do anything. I have to pulll off the side of the road, put the car in neutral for a few minutes and then everything is fine. I just replaced alternator thinking that was the problem. Just would like to get some information

If your in gear (D) for example and you hit the gas, engine revs, but car doesn't speed up, it's a problem with your transmission, and the first thing you can do is have the fluid level checked, and add fluid if needed. If that's not the cure, take it to a transmission shop & have it diagnosed.

How To Test The Fuel Pump 1990 2000 3 0L Ford Taurus
You are on the right track in replacing the fuel filter. Not enough fuel is getting to the engine. It could be a number of other things ... bad fuel pump or dirty injectors to name a couple. The link shows how to check fuel pressure ... which would tell you if the things like the pump are bad.
Might try some fuel additive injector cleaner to the gas tank to see if things improve ... relatively easy.
If it is the fuel pump or other fuel supply problems ... those are harder to fix
