This could be a number of things....Really need more info...Because if it shuts off when you apply the brake and let off gas at the same time it could be an inoperative brake power booster or loss of vacuum..( vacuum leak )..Try this but don't touch brake.....If it dies without touching brake It could be too many things just to try and guess which is the inoperable component..To save time,money and headaches you need to hook it to a scanner...Has it been tuned up..?.What is engine size..,what is mileage..?.Did it happen all of a sudden..Does it get worse or go away at times...and so on..More info is needed for me to just guess...It may be a Throttle Position Sensor..O2 sensor....etc...too many to list...Save a Headache and have it scanned...Auto zone and some parts stores will scan it for free just for your business.....Although in some cases ONLY a DEALER SCANNER will be needed to find exact fault....GOOD LUCK....

Engine wont start, unless I push the gas pedal and keep my foot on it.?

Could be a dirty throttle body, or a stuck idle air control valve.
Is the check engine light staying on now ?

Car hesitates at higher speeds

Plugs and wires, air filters are a good start, and fuel filter. If this doesn't help consider checking the psi on the fuel pump.

On most cars you would turn on the ignition key, do not start the engine, press the gas pedal to the floor 3 times(if 3 times doesn't work, do it 5 times), turn the key off. When you start the car, the light should be off.

Engine wont idle unless you keep your foot on the gas pedal

First, try a new accelerator pump. They're less than $10 and easy to install. On the side of the carburator, near the linkage. It's simple a small rubber diaphragm.
