How come engine stalls in low gear when going uphill?

Your engine produces torque(turning power) and revs, and these are related. You can't get more than a certain amount of torque out of the engine at a given number of revs. If you hit a slope in the wrong gear/at the wrong speed, then forcing the car forward will require more torque than the engine can deliver, and it will stall. It's very much like trying to ride a bike uphill in the wrong gear.

Do manual transmission cars get better gas mileage when driven at low speeds in a high gear or a low gear?

Not sure when you say low speed. Not knowing what your driveline ratio is I will just use some basic numbers .If 20 MPH is your speed and you were in first gear your engine RPM's would be 3000, if you were in second gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2500 , if you were in third gear at 20MPH your engine RPM's would be 2000. A difference of 1000 RPM's from low to high gear. Lower engine RPM's less fuel used.

What does it mean if you can completely engage your clutch in first gear and never give the engine gas but the engine never stalls and moves forward?

Probably a clutch, but might be a problem in the trany.
