With modern cars it is bad when the engine light just comes on and the vehicle does something very different. It should not be driven. If the car is smelling of fuel and jerking it is because it's miss-firing (i.e. one or more cylinder is not getting spark but is getting fuel). This can be anything from electrical/electronic to mechanical like a broken rotor cap (as an example). The good thing, is that the light is coming on and a mechanic can check the ECU for error codes. Alternatively, you can buy or barrow one your self and check it out on your own (I think even certain auto-part stores will check it for you as long as you get in the zone;). 1996 is a good year for that since that is when OBDII started and all vehicles started using the same port to check for issues.

This sounds like a vacuum control problem. Since part of the problem is when the engine is cold; a thermal switch is venting vacuum until the engine warms up enough to shut down the thermal switch, thus restoring a steady idle. Vacuum can be affecting high rpms while running too. You could have a misrouted EGR vacuum line opening the valve at the wrong time. There are sometimes hose routing decals on the radiator shroud or under the hood. These can be visibly checked.
