2.5 YJ loss of power

My '95 YJ is giving me a headache. It is doing two things that I can't seem to pinpoint.

1. Blowback. I know this is a common problem, but what's the remedy? I'm tired of all the oil coming through my air filter/cleaner box. I do have an oil catch can to install but have some reservations.

2. Power loss while driving. It acts as if there's a clog in the exhaust causing some back pressure and an occasional backfire. Most of the time we'll just be cruising along and suddenly there's no power.

Any ideas for me to explore. This is my first Jeep and so I'm learning as I go.
