Does the starter engage again when you go back to park ?
Shifting from park to drive would cut the circuit from the key switch to the starter. The neutral safety switch prevents you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
I would say the key switch is not turning off power to the starter when you go from start to run.
It half sounds like a problem with the safety switch for the starter lockout. On a stick shift it may be on the clutch pedal but is on the brake pedal for automatics. This assures that your foot is on the brake pedal so the vehicle does not lurch when you start it.
This would show up in the restarting process, but it is intended to lock out the starter and would not interfere with an engine that is already running. So to keep the engine running feathering would not have anything to do with the starter lockout.
The transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. When the TCM detects a malfunction with the control, a signal is send to the Engine Control Module (ECM) to trigger the Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. The ECM stores the P0700 code and it means the TCM detected a malfunction with the transaxle controls.

Ok the knock is your flex discs on the drive shaft are bad along with the carrier bearing. Replace before you get stranded or it comes loose.
Fuel distributor may need work if it is hard to start when warm, Replace OVP relay by battery also, its always an issue.
As for the high pitched squeeking. Just replace the serpentine belt. Just because you don't notice any crack or no frays, does not mean that the belt is good. My car was doing the same thing and when I replaced the belt everything was fine.
In regards to jumping when shifting. First take a look at the RPM's. If the RPM's are high when shifting from Drive to Reverse this will cause the jumping. If the RPM's are around 750 to 850 then you might have to get the transmission checked out.
Hopfully this will get you going in the right direction. Good luck...
Have your transmission oil filter changed;
it is located under the transmission pan
The oil is what makes the transmission shift
When you shut off the engine it stops the transmission pump then when you start up again the transmission shifts until the filter clogs again
