Muffler very loud and on excelleration rattling noise under car

I have a 2008 Jetta last night my EPC light came on and the engine light came on. When I pulled into the parking lot my car kind of gave out . I tried to restart it did restart the light was still on. I reset it and it went off until I drive it for 15 minutes. What do I do now ?
I went to back up my Jetta out of a parking spot and it would roll about a foot and stop, almost as if there was a speed bump behind me. I proceeded to put it in first and roll forward same thing, roll about a foot and stop as if there was a speedbump in front of me. I shut it off, turned it back on try to guns, same thing, only this time a little bit of smoke protruded from the hood and all of the transmission fluid ended up on the ground. Any thoughts?
Sometimes when starting car and press on brake, the pedal does not push in and car will roll a little either going front or backing up. Once I get going then seems the brakes do push in.
I just got the car. I pulled the inside lever and it popped up the hood but I can't find any lever under the hood to release the second latch. I have a 2008 jetta 2.5
Tire pressure checked. New tpms sensors Tire shop and mechanic don’t know what to do. Can you help?
My 2008 Jetta 2.5L now has 150K miles and has never had any cooling system issues. Should I have system flushed as a precaution? I have seen some recommendations to simply add coolant as needed.

I walked. no thanks. another said the motor mount. another just the rotors. at this point I think its just the WHOLE FRONT END :( it started in 2012 and I just paid it off last week and its WORSE THEN EVER almost seems not drivable or safe.. what could this be...
