Find another mechanic Crystal. This transmission should have been rebuilt from the beginning.

2003 protege runs with high idel in each gear. I know this is done on perpose to make it feel sporty. Running at 3.5 rpms in 5th at 65 to 70 mph burns gas. Can I lower the rpms to save gas? Btw I don't...

No. You are set by the gear ratio in the transmission and the final drive. The only way to change this would be to change the final drive ratio in the transmission, and there likely are no aftermarket solutions available to you.

At 60mph, why does its runs at 3000rpm

is it shifting into overdrive?, auto or standard trans, at 60mph most vehicles with overdrive are at about 1800 to 2200 rpms...

has someone lowered your final drive axle gear ratio...?

You are going to need a transmission shop. Mazdas do not always throw codes. You have an early OBD transmission, which do not send out many codes.

95 mazda protege stuck in drive, wont shift gears, shifter moves but can't go in reverse, need help please

Check the shift cable that goes between the shifter and the transmission. If it's damaged internally it will not move properly and the condition you stated will be a symptom. Easiest way to check it is to disconnect the transmission end of cable and see if it moves freely. If not, replace it.
