If my car jump time would it still try to turn over but slow?

You have a timing chain which should last 150,000 miles or more.
It could jump time and it could crank slowly but I doubt it.
Do you know if the battery is fully charged ?
Was anything wrong before you replaced the battery ?
Did you try to crank the engine after it cooled off ?

I have a '93 saturn SW-1 that boggs down and has no power. I have replaced catalyic converter, oxygen sensor, coolant temp sensor, crank position sensor, computer, fuel filter, plugs, wires and coils....

Before you spend more money guessing have a professional repair shop diagnose the car for you. You need to know the fuel pressure when its bogging, a scan tool will read if its lean or rich. A timing chain issue will show low compression. Is it constant or come and go? hot? cold? always? every gear? does it ever run OK?

The starter will crank a couple of times, but doesn't start. The clock in the vehicle reset itself, possible dead battery? It will sometimes crank, and bog down like its not going to start... than it...

that's probably a weak battery, I don't think a bad starter would drag it down like that, have your battery and charing system checked, that'll fix it
if the alternator is putting out 13 volts at idle it's good
If you can get a larger capacity battery, it doesn't have to be physicaly larger, just more amperes output, and be sure to clean all terminals
