Yeah that definitely sounds like the ignition switch went out. Had almost the same thing happen, along with alot of transmission error codes. I replaced the ignition switch harness and she purred like a kitten.

2003 chevy malibu, takes awhile to turn over and start, idle shoots up and down when started, also it stalls when i take turns

How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes? With extended crank, you can try cycling the key, on and off, a few times before you crank it. If that helps, have to check fuel system. Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure.
Check and clean the idle air system, see if it helps?

My 2004 would cut off at idle,but start again after a min or so. But time it ran and cut off after a mile. Now it won't start at all. Won't turn over. It will move somewhat when I turned it by

The crank sensor tells the computer when number one cylinder is at top dead center to find the timing for the spark plugs.
If the engine will not crank with the starter, the starter, key switch, battery or cables could be faulty.
Some of these items could also cause it not to start.
If the engine is stuck you won't be able to turn it at all.
