Sounds like you have a broken motor mount and the motor is now moving around in the engine compartment because there is less now to hold it in place. That's probably why coolant is leaking- broke a hose somewhere.
Not a real big deal- an honest mechanic should repair the mount for you for a reasonable price- I would guess around 100.00. Don't dump the car for this. It can be fixed!!!!

Keeps stalling while driving. idling real crazy when I first start it.

I would suggest looking for a vacuum leak. Listed for a loud sucking sound with the engine idling. Or use some carburetor cleaner and spray around the engine with it running and listed for the idle RPM to change.

most likely a blown head gasket between a coolant passage and an oil passage not a cylinder . when coolant gets into a cylinder is when you will see the white smoke and the smell.
