Stalling hesitation

I've seen a lot on vehicles with stopped up catalytic converters, will run smooth at idle but will barely move when put in gear to go. To check without a shop fee try drilling a hole the exhaust pipe in front of the converter then try to dive if it runs smoother in gear you know its a converter problem

lean fuel the ISC cant control idle ,

While in idle my baterry neddle moves back and forth

It sounds like one winding in the alternator is not working, so at low idle it is not providing a smooth full charge to the battery and the gauge is indicating this. Repair or replace alternator.

When i drive the idle is very low and the r p m neddle goes up and down . it sounds like it want to die . i just had a tune up .. and no get and go . help please

Better go back and have the boys retune it. Most likely it is the throttle butterfly flap/valve in the intake hose which is dirty and needs to be cleaned. so called "tune ups" are pretty useless nowadays.
