Sounds like the throttle position sensor to me. I have a 1991 caprice wagon and I have to replace this part every 6 months or so. It's a cheap easy to replace part, around $25, but I haven't been able to find one that will last like the OEM. It's just a variable resistor that tells the computer where you have the gas pedel. When it fails it tells the computer you're giving it gas when you're not.

When catalytic converters go bad, the porcelain matrix inside comes loose and is noisy.
But you can just unbolt it, break up the loose chunks, pour out the pieces, and it will run better than ever.
If you don't pass the next emissions test, then replace it.
But it could just be the heat shield rattling instead.
Take the shield off first, to see if it goes away.

Here are the more common cause of surges, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and/or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving
