On the assumption that normal servicing is up to date (e.g. spark plugs in good condition), I would suspect the ignition spark generator or the coil. Getting replacements from a scrapyard is a small risk but a darn sight cheaper than buying new if you don't actually need them!

186 red motor. Why does it have a missfire under load?

Engine is under max load in the situations you describe, so any weakness in spark or low fuel prssure can cause this, even a weak ignition module.

Nissan Pathfinder showing codes on the emmisions test here in Connecticut p0325 and p0302

Fault Codes 1. PO302 = Missfire on Cylinder 2- Injector could be leaking and causing hard start ( to confirm instead to put the fuel pressure under test to confirm,when just started cold having missfiring, switch engine off and remove spark plug to see whether spark plug 2 is wet with fuel ).
2. PO325 = knock sensor - check the Vacuum line which is above the front right tire on the rear side of the tire,where are small hose comes from charcoal canister up over the shock to the purge valve. That hose from the purge canister is connected to a metal hose and then the metal hose connected back to a rubber hose on the purge valve. As the metal hose gets rusted cause a leak by causing the injector 2 to missfire for a little time when warm started. Please check this first before you do anything else. Good luck.

I have a '92 Accord that when warm will rev up and down when in park but seems to run fine in gear. What will cause this and how do I fix it?

Idle control valve can cause this or any number of things like an O2 sensor or throttle position sensor.

Low rpm's in idle when heating/cooling system is on & surges.

Check your EGR or your Idle control Valve. This can cause a problem with your irratic idling
