Why does my car not stay running in gear, unless I continue giving it gas?

(1997 Saturn SL1)
in Apple Valley, CA on December 22, 2012
Idling fine in park or neutral, once i put it in gear or come to a stop I have to keep giving it gas or it it will die. Now today it started dying like that while in neutral, I had to keep my foot on the gas to keep it runing, and a ton of smoke would come out my exaust every time i pressed the gas, also my temperature gauge showed it was getting hotter. HELP ME PLEASE!!??
