What are we working on? Carburetor system or fuel injection? Sounds like there may be a cross fire in the firing order.
What happened or changed to start this problem? Was there some type of work done to the engine?
There is a lot of missing information. Does the vehicle have a OBDll system so that you can hook up a scanner? If so , do that and and see what information you can get from it.

My 96 honda civic rough starts dies when put in gear

If you know for a fact you have no vac leaks, the next step would be to check the idle air control valve. It should be mounted in the throttle body. It could be stuck open.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating air flow into the throttle body.
The throttle plate could also be stuck open. An eighth of an inch would do it. Make sure the throttle and cruise control cables are not pulling on the throttle plate.
Vac leaks could include the PCV valve and the EGR valve.

Engine is running rough at idle; making slight "popping" sound; can see rpm's on the tach jump slightly

have you checked the EGR (exhaist gas recirculation) valve? sometimes carbon will chip off and make them stick partially open causing extremely rough idle or wont idle at all without help from throttle

Replaced battery now wont idle

hold revs up for approx 5-10 seconds then slowly bring back to idle if it still stalls have to adjust air bleed screw in throttle body to adjust idle speed
ECU needs to relearn must put in gear then turn on a/c while in gear idling and then turn on head lights then put in neutral while other things are on then turn off all things and go for drive

High idle miss fire

check that routing of your throttle cable going to the top of the engine, sounds like it may be dry (no lube) or kinked somewhere. also check for a bent bracket where it would go through.
