Some ideas...

Fast idle: Really low coolant temp; coolant temp sensor is shot; PCV hose is brittle and leaking; MAP hose (if your's is remotely mounted) is brittle and leaking; IAC is sticking

Stumble: EGR valve is not closing at idle; MAP sensor is giving poor vacuum readings (thinks your throttle plate is open like on the highway); TPS is giving false readings (but would typically give a code)

Good luck

I'd bet on the coolant temperature sensor. On a 2000 just replace it. Whether it's bad now or not, it's going to go sometime soon.
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
