Would a bad starter cause my 84 caprice to shut off and not crank back while I was driving down highway it also started losing power before shutting off

Nope, a bad starter will make an engine not crank over, but has no effect on how the engine runs once it is started.

How to disable A fuel pump inertia switch (fuel cut off switch)

It's a simple on-off switch, and being an inertia switch no outside controls for it, so I would think you could just cut it out and splice the pump wires together. Do a good splice with solder.
Yours is obviously malfunctioning. Replace it or do away with it. Fords are the only vehicles with this safety feature, as far as I know.

Cuts off when driving

Starting at the beginning of your story, you listed both the V6 and V8 engines. Either way, they are both carb models so no fuel injection and no electric fuel pump.
There is a pickup coil and a spark module inside the distributor that could be the problem, as well as the coil and other components.
It will be very tough to troubleshoot if it always starts back up.
It the problem was the key switch you would loose warning lights on the dash too.

Dodge Stratus 2.4 DOHC shut down on highway won't start back up

I follow your story and found it very interesting. Looks like as the vehicle was driven decided to get relaxed. For what you done up to now you spent quite good amount of money with no results. Has at all passed from your mind whether all that cause by means of immobilizer activation or any fuel pump failure? The Knock Sensor want stop deadly the car. It causes misfiring,stalling etc.Hope this help, Good Luck.

The car will sometimes shut off when I'm crusing,

when i owned my 98 XJ8L... it would loose power on the highway and then stall out once it came to a stop on the side of the road...there was a recall for this... a throttle body adjustment and computer reprogramming solved it for me.

I have a 2000 Alero 6cyl and reciently it has been shutting down on the highway. I have replaced the Altenator with a NEW one, replaced the battery and had a new compressor installed plus replaced my MAP...

Sounds like you have have a crankshaft senor problem. Sometime they will go "open" or stop reading when they get hot and after cooling down will start back reading. This is caused by the resistance in the sensor getting too high when it gets hot, resistance rises with heat. Running the air and electronic systems like cruise and radio can cause the engine to run warmer due to extra load on the altenator, ac compressor running, ect ect.
