Sounds like you have a Gremlin in the engine compartment, throw some water in there I hear they dont like that. But seriously I think your idle is set too high and the car wants to go a little too hard, ease it back to around 900 rpm ( for a 6 or 4 cyl ) and see if it is not better. Then of course there might be a malfunction in your cruise control module I cant tell from your description but remove the fuse to be sure.

If you mean loose/broken motor mounts, here is a way to check. Uou'll need a helper for this, open the hood,start the engine, put the vehicle in drive and step on both the gas and the brake, now carefully have the helper look at the engine and see if it moves upwards/sideways, if it does your engine its most likely loose. also if when you acelerate you hear a noise under the hood, that may be another sign.
