The new key won't be recognized by the vehicles security system, a dealer can set it up and also some really good locksmiths.

But b4 it would randomly cut off, but start right back up. Then it eventually stopped starting up but it cranks, just don't go ahead and start... In all scenarios of it not starting, the green key light wouldn't light up.

Then you may have more than just a key problem, possibly an ignition componet going into thermal open while running or a fuel pump relay that is getting weak.

How do I fix these things? Fuel pump? Main relay? Ignition sensor? I am beyond ignorant when it comes to cars.

As those units are all sealed you can't repair them you can only replace them. The only other thing is to check the wiring for proper power, grounds and that the ohms are not too high so they don't damper the signals.
