P0300 is multiple cylinder misfire. Sounds like it needs a tune up.

What would cause a 2004 Ford Taurus to have codes p0300 and p0316?

The P0300 is a general misfire code, and can be a result of numerous things. Coils, wires, plugs, injectors, sensors, mechanical issues etc. Being that you are throwing a P0316 in conjunction with the P0300, I would think that they are related, but rather than throw money at the vehicle>, do a few things first.
Replace your plug wires, chances are they are at, or close to the end of their life,Check the connector going to the CPS for corrosion or a poor connection. Clear the codes and see if the P0300 and P0316 codes come back.In the event that the codes do come back, or just one of them, you can rule out the possibility of the plugs and wires and move on to more possibilities.If the scanner you are using has the ability to monitor misfires, this could be a helpful tool to identify which cylinder(s) the misfire(s) is/are isolated to.In the event the spark plug wires don't fix your issue, and it is isolated to a specific cylinder, or group of cylinders it could tell you where to look next.

I removed my instrument cluster from my 1997 ford Taurus and now it won't shift out of first gear

Your car has went into a fail safe mode, either one because the speedo is not the proper gear ratio for that particular vehicle, not all of them were the same, it depends on the exact model. For instance, a Tarus SE is different from a Tarus LE / SE / on and on, and if the gear ration is not correct, then the TCM will not ssend a signal to the shift solenoids to do their job thus the car wont shift. It sounds to me like your original issue may have been that the speedometer didn't function or work at the cluster, ad you've made repairs to the wrong part. Change your Spped Sensor, and it will be ok, IF the cluster is for that particular vehicle. If it is the proper part, your only issue is the speed sensor.

Ford tarus se 2002 3.0 litre v6 the check engine light was on then it goes flashing

Flashing "check engine" light means to get it checked now.
A lot of parts stores will check it for free to find out the codes causing the malfunction.
(I'll bet you have a misfire on one of your cylinders.)
