The first thing you need to do is have the engine control module scanned for both key on codes and engine running codes.

Ford Focus 2010 2.0 tdci titanium makes an emergency stop on its own

that sounds extremely dangerous!
I assume you have an electric handbrake mechanism.
Best bet would be to have a diagnostic test carried out to check the speed sensors and brake controller....asap!

When idleing at a complete stop it dies

Check air cleaner. put some Lucas injector cleaner in the gas tank or a product called mystery oil. Also at night with all the lights off open the hood and watch to see if their is any sparking between spark plug wires.

My Ford Focus stalls at stop lights and sputters while driving it.Also the engine light came on.What to do or look for?

If the "check engine" light came on, that's the starting point. The computer detected a problem and the "trouble code(s)' are stored in the computer. You will need an OBD II code reader to retrieve the code(s). Some auto parts stores do this for free. Since there is a whole series of codes, I can't guess as to what it is. If the store gives you the codes and not the meanings, just reply here and I can give you the definition.
