When put into reverse, it wtarts to move back

You need to take it top a tranny shop before something breaks. You may have a torq converter issue that only a shop can repair. Or you may have a bad solenoid in the trans. Also if the engine is idling high in park you may have a vacuum in the engine area.

2003 chevy impala starts cold and runs well but then it wont hold the speed it looses speed and won't accelerate over 23000 rpms

This can be your catalytic converter. If engine has no power, and won't go very fast, and you have your foot to the floor, this is the likely cause. The car may be covered by a Chevy extended warranty for this known defect. The warranty is 10 years 100K miles on that particular part for that failure. Take it to a dealer and they should fix it for free.
