New carb or clean the old one with paint thinner.

clean air filter and carb. if that's not enough, needs a small engine mechanic

Fuel starvation or timing issue. Clean the carburettor. Take it off and use carb cleaning aerosol. Use copper fuse wire to make sure the jet(s) are clear. You can buy refurb carb kits if it's a common carb.

Engine is misfiring and likely running lean. Replace the spark plug, air filter and fuel filter first.
