your engine seems to be running rich. that may be do to a bad spark plug, spark plug wire, bad distributor cap. If you have a 22re you should check for trouble codes by jumping TE1 and E1.
You should also check your engine timing. With a timing light. The timing marks are located on or above the oil pump. keep in mind in order to get timing right you must have TE1 and E1 jumped. Set to 5 degrees advanced. If your engine is improperly timed it will accelerate slowly, and get worse mileage.
Also adjust/Check engine valves appropriately. they will cause low power.
Also does it misfire at idle?

pull the shifter out and check for bent and worn parts, most likely the shaift rails are worn out and it is stuck between gears.

10w 40 - 20w 50 is good depeding on the mileage. If it is higher mileage, I would use the heavier oil(20w 50). If the engine has been rebuilt or is well maintained, low mileage, use the lower weight oil. Any quality brand will work. If you decide on synthetic, you will be stuck with synthetic! Royal Purple or Lubro Moly makes really great products to give longevity to your engine. It will come with a bigger price tag though.
