I have a 1989 5-series BMW which sometimes stalls after changing from reverse to drive. It also sometimes shakes when first driving in reverse before changing to drive.

Sounds like your vacuum assist brakes diaghram has sprung a leak. Pull the hose to the assist and plug it with a bolt or something. Then try it.

Generally there is something wrong that makes the engine too weak for that resistance of putting it in gear.
That could be a misfiring cylinder, an intake manifold leak or cracked hose, a bad sensor like temperature, etc.
Does it idle smoothly?
It is better after it warms up?
But another possibility is that the tranmission is not going into the right gear. Try putting it into low instead of drive.
Of the torque converter bearing could be siezed, and not allowing the normal slippage it needs.

May have a worn out transmission
range selector or switch
That would be on the transaxle,
You use drive and reverse a lot,
so it would be a possible.
The switch is open at times, and you
can not start the car or stalls
