Ok you may be losing fuel pressure get it check but you may need a fuel regulator or a coolant temp sensor

as far as the bogging and dieing,it sounds like the tps.a simple trottle body service would fix that.for your new problem you need to some test before pointing to a salution.start the car and cover your tail pipe.as pressure builds it push you hand off.a clogged cat will put to much back pressure on the engine.i would un plug the mass air flow sensor and try running the car.this will turn on the check engine light.check your air filtter and plugs.also check your wires.a nother test is a coil strees test.(you have to go to a shop for this)if the car runs ok with no load but spitts and sputters in drive you may have a openning coil.checking with a meter only works if it does not run.last but not least while you at the shop,have them check your timing.a faulty cam sencer will bog the car down with bad timing advancement but not throw a code.
hope this helps,remember to keep it simple,expensive elec. parts are not always the problem

SOURCE: no acceleration
I had the same problem with one exception. It would rev higher than 3500 but the higher it revved the more it bogged. I had the catalytic converter replaced. I thought I bought a new car. Acceleration is just like new. It was easy enough to test. My mechanic cut a hole in the exhaust pipe in front of the catalytic converter. It sounded like a truck but the acceleration difference was immediate. Easy diagnosis.
The car is hard to shift because the more you press on the accelerator the more the computer for the transmission won't let it shift. Which in turn causes the car to bog more sending more unburned fuel into the catalytic converter. Which in turn causes more carbon build up and more back pressure. Vicious cycle. It will only get worse.
My thermostat caused the entire problem. Thermostat was stuck open, engine never got to operating temp most days. Car burned rich. Bad gas mileage. A lot of unspent fuel being dumped into the converter. Probably have some underlying cause that needs to be addressed. Bad plugs, wires, coil, fuel filter.

SOURCE: misfire at 4000 RPM
you may be in need of a tune up. Try squirting some wate (with a squirt bottle not a hose) an look for arcing, aslo squirt around the coil, you should eather see or hear thedifferanceonce they are et.
