Something to check would be if there is rust in the break-drums that would need to be cleaned. Another possibility would be the strap around the muffler. Check to make sure it isn't broken. If it is, the muffler may be hitting part of the frame, hence the noise. Other than that, I have no idea.

Would a hole in a 98 Toyota corollas mufler cause the car to feel like it wants to stall or like the engine is not getting enough power also is the muffler a single or three part system?

Because of condensation the inside of your muffler, the muffler will begin to deteriorate (rust) over time from the inside. This can and will cause holes in the muffler. Along with the hole (s) the internal structure of the muffler will eventually break apart and plug the muffler, preventing the exhaust gas and the pressure from the engine from exiting the vehicle. This will cause what is called "back pressure" on the engine, causing it to lose power. Extreme example would be "you push the gas pedal to the floor but the car will not go more the 25 miles per hour". I would recommend you have you muffler replace. That should solve your problem.
