Default Severe engine vibration at idle

Truck runs fine at speed, but vibrates and wants to stall at idle. The story begins with a heater hose patch job failure on the way home from work. Smoke billowing from the vents and hood. Was able to limp back home adding fluid along the way. Error codes P0301, P0302, P1000. Replaced coil and SP wires. SP 1 and 2 fire (son held one, got a shock, it was funny - won't do that again) so the misfires are fixed. Other codes B1359, P0500. So began the chase. Truck wouldn't start so replaced the starter. Battery checked out ok. Replaced vapor canister purge valve, ignition switch, idle air control valve, engine camshaft position sensor. Ran K-Seal HG sealant through system. Today, would not start. Think theft device issue because light flashes rapidly.
Something else, I suspect a short somewhere, lights dimmed when attempting to start maybe draining battery too much.
Running out of ideas. Any helpful suggestions please!!!

I was able to jump start my truck today and drive it to a mechanic. I will post the results when I get them. Thanks all.

Preliminary results are not good. Low compression on #1. If it is valves, he will give me a quote. If it is rings, he says to put it out to pasture. Any thoughts?
