Hi M8 and welcome

The light flickering at high revs is the alternator on its way out. Afraid its quite a common thing on these cars and the battery light flicker at high revs is the normal symptoms. It will only get worse I'm afraid.

It could also be the cause of the engine stalling if there is not enough bat volts. Could also be the Idle control valve wich can get gummed up.
I had this with mine and bought a good sedcond hand one of ebay for about £3

Check for any air leaks around the top of the engine indicating a vac leaking causing the car to stall. could be just a split pipe.

Cheers
Tony
