Your problem sounds like a faulty ignition switch--I'm basing this on the fact that if you jiggle/hold the key in a certain way, your car will run. It should be relatively simple to swap it out.
Note that the ignition switch comes in 2 parts: (1) the lock cylinder for the key and (2) the electrical switch behind the lock cylinder. Your lock cylinder (usually, the more expensive part) is probably fine; the wear or loose wire is most likely on the electrical piece of the ignition switch.
If you're handy, this may be a self-repair--you'll need the car's key to help release the lock cylinder so you can get to the ignition switch. However, you may need to disassemble some or all of the steering column shrouding to get to the switch connectors (this will be an unplug / replace kind of item). Before doing any of that, make sure you disconnect the battery, as you don't want to accidentally cross a wire and end up with a face full of exploding air bag. If you take this to a garage, I suspect that this would not be a major repair in terms of cost.
