Your clutch is dragging, that is, it's not 'throwing out'. If you have a hydraulic clutch check the fluid in the reservoir, If mechanical, just look for the point where you adjust it and tighten it up a little- I don't remember which those old Broncos had.

Ensure that it's not frozen before you adjust it though- frozen clutch has to be warmed up and then driven a little to dry it

If adjusting it get you no satisfaction then observe what you can and report back- the list of possible causes is long.

Take your Bronco to an Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. Offhand a new ignition switch would seem like a good idea, because the fuelpump should not be working in the ACC position.
If a new ignition switch does not help the fuelpump problem the pump is wired to an accessory. You need to look up the fuse info in an owners manual.

My Bronco is stuck in reverse

Make sure your emergency brake cable hasn't seized up. Some vehicles use reverse to adjust the brakes. Try moving the vehicle with the clutch pushed in, then with the clutch out to make sure it is not sticking, check your shifter linkage to make sure it is not bent or sticking.

I had a similar issue with my 88 XLT w/351w. It was the beginning of a problem with my MAPP sensor. After a wjile I could hardly keep the truck running at all. I changed the MAPP sensor and made sure the timing was still on and now it runs fine.
