Unfortunately it could be one of many problems. Check your spark plugs and make sure they are not foul or worn to a disasterous point (do this first as it it least costly). Your timing belt could need adjusting. It could even be your battery or alternator (free battery and alternator checks at most auto parts stores - some will do it without you having to remove them - some won't). There are more possibilities but this is a good start!

How can you accelerate when your speed does not?

By changing direction. Acceleration is a change in velocity. Since velocity takes direction into account, while speed does not, an object can having a changing velocity even while its speed remains the same. And while that object is changing its velocity by changing its direction, it is accelerating, regardless of its speed remaining constant. For example, if a car is driving north at constant speed of 20mph, its speed is 20mph, while its velocity is 20mph towards the north. At this point, the car is not accelerating. Now if the car turns a corner to head east while maintaining its speed of 20mph, its velocity is changing from 20mph northward to 20mph north-eastward and finally to 20mph eastward. As it is turning, it is accelerating. However, as soon as it stops turning, the car is no longer accelerating.
