2006 impala idles rough. changed plugs and air filter, their is no hesitation when stepping on the gas and runs smooth when driving

The needle valve inside the plenium chamber has probably got a build up of carbon on it making it idle fast and rough. Remove the end of the plenium chamber and give the needle valve a good clean.

Very hard to start and idles rough

Cold start injector could be bad, or you could have a small vacuum leak, like a cracked hose. A vacuum leak is most noticeable at idle, when engine cold.

Engine runing rough

This code is most likely not related to the problem, it sounds like you may have picked up some contaminated gasoline, maybe has water in it or other like dirt.

Stalls after getting gas then starts fine. Also noticed it idles rough at other times. No trouble codes. Any thoughts?

When it stalls after getting gas, are you filling the tank up beyond the first stop? I was filling mine up after the pump shuts itself off in order to top it off as much as possible. I learned this can plug some type of purge vent or something like that. I stopped topping it off and haven't had a problem since. Mine would hesitate and then die at the first couple stop lights after getting gas. From what I've read, the cheap fix is not to fill it up past the stop point, but the permanent fix is to replace the gas tank since the vent physically part of the tank.
