When I switch from park to drive, it revs up like I am in park, my car moves a little bit when I do it but I do not want to blow up my engine, what could it be?

Where would the transmission fluid be, and what could be damaged for this to happen.

Perhaps you could check the owners manual, index is in the back pages of book, or you may have a car savvy friend that'll help you out... This can be a bit tricky for the average DIYer... IF fluid level is correct .. Suggest contacting auto repair shop as there is no user friendly fixes beyond that... Good luck!
