Why would a 1991 Mustang 5.0 rev up by itself when the clutch is pushed in?

Accelerator linkage binding or idle air control solonoid is bad. possible throttle position sensor (TPS) Or the clutch is slightly engaged at all times. You can adjust this, if it hasn't been adjusted already. To do this, pull on the clutch pedal towards you (instead of to the floor). Use some strength when pulling back. If it is able to adjust, it will click. I would try that before spending money.

not unless the transmission already comes with a clutch for high performance hugh horsepower builds it would be better to upgrade the clutch anyway

I'm not a mechanic / technician but I believe that would be a throwout / release bearing problem on your clutch

It would stall out at lights because when you need to shift you have to let up on the clutch easy when your changing gears; therefore you will stall out if you let the clutch go too fast.
