Not being there makes this difficult to give you anything useful, however, in reading your post, It makes me think that the clutch has little to do with the problem. Likely, the engine is either not getting enough fuel or is loosing spark. When this happens, the clutch being engaged is keeping the engine turning...when depressed, it allows it to completely stop. I would first check for proper fuel flow and pressure (filter & pump), then check ignition (crank sensor & other related ignition components) The items I've specifically named are the most common ones that fail. You should verify with individual component tests as well as code tests (larger parts houses do testing free) before replacing suspect items or repairs can get very costly even when not using a repair shop.
The tests etc are too involved to write here, but are outlined in vehicle specific manuals made by haynes, chilton etc.
If you need help on specific items, I can help you with that.

Engine stalling and rough run
issue at low speeds
is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and
throttle valve. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use
carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC
chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is
running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the
speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and
blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the
negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
