Whens the last time you've changed your fuel filter?

I would start there.. Your fuel pump might work fine but once it warms up it might have issues pushing the fuel through the filter.

As for changing gears, i do it all the time at like 140.. I'll be crusing then drop it to 3rd (sport mode) to pass then shift back up to D

You can shift down at highways speeds...its not a problem, but if you don't feel comfortable, do it at slower speeds like 80kms/h and see if it drops a gear.

shifting down didn't seem like a problem, I wanted to also note that in the morning if I don't hit the gas pedal before I start, it sometimes won't catch . . .

Get it checked out ASAP. I'm not expect but i do know that you're not supposed to/shouldnt need to step on the gas with a fuel injected car.

I'm guessing maybe a feul pump or dirty injectors

Cats might be plugged... Get cold air intake... Try both. A/C turning off for sure??? Listen to it and double check. Thats gotta be it... Also maybe fuel injectors... USe a expensive (like 10$) Fuel clean kit twice in your gas tank... TRY IT!
