You have a failed transmission, you will need a rebuild.

Truck will not go in park. Truck parks in reverse, reverses in neutral, goes to neutral in drive and drives in 2nd gear. How do I get it back to right configuration.

I'm assuming the shifter is on the column. The linkage would be between the column and the transmission in the engine compartment.
You should be able to disconnect the linkage at the transmission, put the transmission in park, then check the linkage to see if it is bent or stretched with the shifter in park.

2002 Kia Spectra stuck gear shift

Sounds like you need a new shifter assembly, or the brake switch. Most likely will be the shifter though if you can move it out of park with the override.

Our Kia Spectra was not ran for 2 weeks-when we went to turn on-the gear shift was extremely tight and we used force to move into reverse. We turned the engine off and then when we tried to restart-engine...

this is very common with these cars the shift shaft goes through the aluminum case below the neutral safety switch then is exposed 3 inches befofre it goes into the transmission to shift the case is supposed to be a guide this corrodes you need to use a silicone based lubricant to free it up. Have some one spray under the switch while you hold the brake (key on engine off) and move the shifter from park to first approximately 2 min or thirty times

Car wants to turn off unless i accelerate it

try replacing your transmission fluid to ease up the drive, might as well try replacing the sparkplugs for better fuel burning.

Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.
