92 mitsubishi mirage stalled when i pressed on gas pedal.

I would check the computer for trouble codes first. A code may point you in the right direction to test.
Problem could be a faulty throttle position sensor, fuel pressure low, or ignition problem.

Put accelerator down and you go nowhere,has no power at all.

is the check engine light on ! its possible that the convertor is plugged up. if it is plugged the engine will be very sluggish. A converter that is damaged can cause the engine to not function properly. For example, the engine struggles when going up inclines, it hesitates when you try to accelerate or you experience a noticeable drop in fuel economy. If a tank of gas is not taking you as far as it used to, then it may be time to have the catalytic converter looked at. does it smell like rotten eggs. if so the convertor needs attention. Diagnose any and all diagnostic trouble codes before replacing a catalytic converter to preserve and enhance its performance and effectiveness.

1990 Cadillac deville was running fine today, then after a long drive uphill it began to vibrate/shudder when accelerating from stop or low speed if gas applied strongly. No problem at high speed, just...

I would check the fuel pressure, sounds like a fuel delivery problem...possible dirty fuel filter. The vibration is probably due to a missfire. Have you had had a tune up lately? Check for vacuum leaks. I hope this helps.
