All of a sudden my engine is revving when in park (1995 Volvo 940)

How high do the RPMs go up? It could and usually is your idle air control valve(IAC). In the 940, it is not bolted into the intake, rather it bolted elsewhere underneath the intake and two rubber vacuum hoses connect it to the engine intake. If these hoses are ruptured, the your engine will rev up at idle. Also it could just be the IAC itself malfunctioning.

1994 940 volvo will not crank once engine is shut off

Check that there is no corrosion, on all the contact, for the solenoid etc, Also, if it has an old starter, it could be in need of replacing.
Unfortunately, there are a few possibilities, so if you could elaborate a little more, as to what you've tried, just to narrow the margin,
good luck.
