How many times does a transmission supposed to shift starting from drive in a 1988 dodge ram with a 318 motor

Depends if you have a regular 3 speed automatic, or a 3 speed with overdrive.
Put it in drive, it will start out in first gear, then shift into second at about 15 MPH, into third at about 30-35 MPH. With overdrive, fourth gear will kick in at about 45-55MPH.

Overdrive not kicking in on 2002 rl

Overdrive comes in at about 42 mph unless you have
the gas pedal completely to the floor at a higher speed
& that is unlikely

Go to a trans shop,pick up their rebuilder or best guy or girl
& go for a ride

Hesitates when going 55mph

How does it perform acceleration wise up to 55 mph? If good, then I'd have exhaust checked for restriction as well, as in plugged catalytic converter.

Car accelerates without pressing gas pedal

I had a similar problem with a K5 Blazer, where the gas pedal had a plastic pivot point in the linkage. After about 60K miles, the pivot developed a burr that locked the gas pedal open and kept the vehicle about 60 MPH. If I kicked the pedal to knock it off the burr, it would then slow down. Try it...
