You may have a gearbox problem but look at it this car is over two and a half ton's,,,,, its no light weight flimsy! so its going to need a fair old bit of right boot to get her moving and just as much to stop her again! i had one of them and mine was the same,,,its no sprinter,,,slow to start moving and slow to stop too!
you can test the gearbox but DO NOT do this for more that a fuw seconds,,,,,,start the engine up and warm it up,,,then hold the brakes hard on,,,put her in drive,,,,and give her full throttol,,,,hold the throttol hard down,,, read the rev counter,,,if it reads more that 2000rpm,,,you got a problem with the gearbox!
DO NOT hold the throttol down for more than a fuw seconds,,,,,,
you will burn up the gearbox if its slipping!!!!!

Sounds like your car is in the limp home mode. When the computer in your car fails it goes into a limp home mode that lets you drive it home at a slow speed. Sounds like when you changed the battery you may have damaged the computer. Take it to the dealer to have it checked out.
