I would say that the timing is off, if it has distributor and not coil packs try to turn the distibutor some.

The possible problem could be a faulty idea air control valve or a dirty throttle plate. Also, inspect the car for any vacuum leaks.

Stalling when stopping can be a sign of a bad lock-up torque converter solenoid. But if it stalls while in park, it may also be a very bad vacuum leak, especially if it idles rough. I am assuming it has good plugs and plug wires.

The cabin air filter can not cause a rough idle. It only filters the air for the ac/heater.

If the "check engine" light is on, use a code scanner to find out what's wrong. You can borrow, rent or buy a code scanner from most auto parts retailers. Sometimes they'll even show you how to connect it and how to read the results.

Can you simply replace the TFI on the 1990 F150 and solve the stalling problem?

YES! If you have tried a major tune up to include: spark plugs, distributor cap , rotor, wires, and fuel pump and the truck still idles rough and stalls at stop signs then it is the TFI ignition modual located on the side of the distributor.
