I can't quite tell if you mean the engine runs but with very little power, or if there is power but the transmission is slipping?

If the power is failing, then the question is when does it happen?
Is it temperature related, only happens at high speed, or is it only after a period of driving fast? If so, it could be a temperature sensor, the fuel pump or filter, or it could be the air mass sensor being coated with foam from the PVC valve, or it could be a plugged catalytic converter.
Do the engine lights come on or any other indicator?

If the engine has power but transmission slips, then check the ATF (automatic tranmission fluid) to see if it is low or burned smelling, or dark. If it is, then either fill or change it, and have it checked by a tranmission specialist.

Car shuts down after it hits 75 but it never use to do that

You will need to get the emissions tested to see if maybe if you have problem there. Being an 02 its possible the cataytic converter failed and is restricting the exhaust. One thing is we never replace a catalytic converter without first making sure the engine is running properly. All it takes is a few days of driving with an emission issue to waste a brand new cat.

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.

No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

1994 Nissan Altima shakes while idling

Broken or worn out engine mounts will cause allot of engine vibration in drive at idle, reverse also, change all 4 the mounts, not just the 2 broken ones. As far as slow acceleration no mounts will not cause that, Have you reached the 100,000 mile recommended tune up? have you ever replaced the fuel filter, this is required every 30,000, let me know.
