Why would a 1998 F150 with a replaced used engine stall when idling and sputter when accelerating?

Start with a good tune up, new plugs, wires, dist cap and rotor, fuel and air filter. Clean the idle air control and inside the throtle body, and run some injector cleaner through it.

Could be EGR valve sticking open or dirty at an idling condition or hesitates when accelerating.

Possibly. The main thing it can cause is severe engine wear. Too much oil is just as bad as too little.
