Post elipse 2002 gt 3.0L v6 high RPM when engine is cold, stall at idle

hi, everyone!! I have a mitsubishi eclipse 2002 gt 3.0L v6 automatic . recently i noticed that my car is high on RPM when the engine is not warmed up(the temparature is about 70F), the RPM is about 1600 at idling when i start up the car, then after about 5 minutes of driving, it goes down about 800 RPM at idling. and i noticed that when the engine is not warmed up, at idling, my car would switch gear even i didn't hit the gas petal. the speed can go up to 20 Miles per hour at idling. everything is not normal.. I have 2 codes in my car, i thought it might have been the egr code causing this problem. there are the 2 codes. 1. egr valve curcuit malfunction 2. evap small leak and i have replaced the egr valve solenoid, but the code is still there, i wanted to take off my egr valve to replace it, but the bolt heads that connect the valve to the car are damaged, because they got stack to the car, and i used the screwdriver, couldn't take them off, and ruined them. And also I have replaced 2 of my oxygen sensor, front upstream and rear upstream.(bank1 sensor1 and bank2 sensor1) anybody knows what cause this problem???

I would address the EGR problem first as a stuck EGR valve can cause strange idle issues as the ECU is trying to compensate. Time to take it to a shop if you can't remove the EGR valve.
