Hi there. The motor mounts when damaged or worn out can cause serious vibrations, but it is highly unlikely that they are causing the engine to run rough to the point it want to stall. This is most likely caused by a fuel system restriction, meaning dirty fuel injectors, throttle body, mass air flow sensor and more. It is probably a good idea to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete an engine vibrates inspection, so they can isolate the source of this problem and recommend the right repairs.
