If the engine will not crank in park or neutral, you may be able to jumper the brown pink and the tan red wires at the switch. I would not jumper them with the switch connected in the circuit.
I am assuming you have already checked the starter relay.

I have a 2000 mercury sable I replace the starter in car still not turning over won't start

Assuming the engine is not seized, you need to check the small wire on the starter solenoid for power when the key is held in the crank position for power. If no power during this procedure, you will need to check the starter relay as well as the neutral safety switch for proper operation. Will the vehicle start in neutral? If it will, suspect a defective neutral safety switch

Yesterday went to town put my 2001 mercury sable in park and could not get it back in gear, after fighting with it for several mins. It went in gear, went to save alot did the same thing, turned ignition...

Brake Shift interlock system problem probably . This is a safety system that will not let you move the gear selector from park ,unless your foot is pressing on the brake pedal . Electrically controlled locking solenoid , wiring , brake switch used to control this .

Transmission Range Sensor and Neutral Safety Switch are the same thing. As for the other question, I'm not sure what you're asking.
