You will need to adjust the low speed idle screw. Make sure the spark plug is clean before adjusting.

How do I fix My Honda hrx217 surges at idle runs ok at load.h

The carburetor has two circuits, a main power circuit and an idle circuit. When the idle circuit gets partially clogged, the governor will drop the throttle shut, the engine partially dies and the governor yanks the throttle back open till the main kicks in. If the idle circuit gets completely clogged, the engine will need the choke partially on to make up for the missing air fuel mixture, will run rich and surge horribly. The carburetor needs to be cleaned out, a can of Berryman's spray can dissolve the crud out and restore operation. 90% of this problem is caused by old contaminated gas

Idle speed engine dies when throttled

It does sound like its getting to much fuel, or the lack of air. Air filter ok? If it is you might need to have a compression check done to see how the piston rings are.
