You could have a miss or a water leak. You can spray carb cleaner around the intake and see if your idle changes to help find that kind of leak. Be careful of paint and electronics.

Don't worry about a huge cam just stay conservative and get a cam with a choppy lope.. If you put a big *** cam in there it could get even slower... You want the right combo..

E303 and b303 are good mid range cams

I wouldn't go bigger than a E303 or something similar on a stock motor.

Usually you put in a cam after mods are done to round out and maximize the combo. The best specs for a N/A motor would need to be different than that of a nitrous or forced induction motor.

Stay conservative if you gotta change it out. Personally, I'd would wait on the cam till you are ready to change the heads and intake as well.
