You probably disturbed the vacuum lines causing one of the to leak, check the hose from the pcv valve, it is common for it to leak where it connects to the manifold

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

Probably need the computer reset. All these cars now days are set up for the dealer to screw you. The fix yourself is about history

Check and clean Idle air control valve. Make sure its responding to signal as well. Also make sure ther are no vacuum hoses disconnected. This may not be a "cure" but it's a good place to start.

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)
