After starting transmission won't move out of park

It sounds like if this is a car with the brake interlock, meaning the car will not shift from park unless the brake is pressed, there is a malfunction there, some are electronic and it may not be getting power to it especially if there are other warning lights on the dash. It would help if you could give more details, like which lights are on. Most cars with a mechanical interlock will have a cable you can adjust either at the brake cable or at the shifter.

Many keys today have a microchip in the key itself, and if the chip has malfunctioned the car won't respond normally. Your second key working is proof the trouble is in the key not the car. I think they can be checked in some Autoparts stores.

does the oil need topping up regulary as well ?does it smoke when pulling away or when accelerating after gear change down ? smoke out exhaust indicates oil entering the cylinders, either from the valves or getting past the oil reclaim piston ring so a bit more diagnosis will be required

My car has been a bit chuggie over the last few weeks but today the ems light was flashing and i was losing power and chugging when trying to accelerate . please help

Those symptoms sound a lot like a cylinder misfire. This usually happens when one of the following things occur. Start checking in this order. To make your life easier (and to verify it is indeed a misfire, have the OBD system scanned by the dealer, reputable shop or auto parts store (AutoZone will sometimes do it for free) to find out which cylinder(s) are having issue.

1. You have a fouled spark plug, remove and replace
2. You have a bad ignition coil, remove, replace
3. You have a cracked engine block, or leaking head gasket, pressure test each cylinder to determine.
4. There is an issue with some component in the exhaust gas calibrarion (MAF, O2 sensor). A computer diagnostic will tell you which component.

Check and make sure the bell housing on the transmission isn't broke and trying to separate from the engine. Shifter shouldn't move while cranking unless transmission itself is moving.

Orange engine light on Peugeot 106 independence, car sounding chuggy, just had cambelt done also

most european cars only give colored lights when maintenance is due or a malfunction is detected. since the car is running "sluggish", may want to get a fualt code pulled from the ECM to help find the problem.

Shift into D the N started flashing green .

Try moving the shift lever from D towards the next gear away from N (not all the way, just hold it a little bit over). If the N light goes out and the D light acts normal, then your shift linkage needs to be adjusted so the transmission goes into gear exactly when the shift lever is in a detent.
If that isn't the problem, it's time to get a readout of the engine error code to see where the problem is. You can get this done at most car parts stores, or they may let you use their engine code analyzer yourself if you give them a deposit on it. (The two hardest parts are getting down under the steering wheel to plug it in and deciphering the error code.)
