It seems that your oil light is directly related to your poor idle. It sounds like your engine RPM are getting so low that it loses sufficient oil pressure thus triggering the oil light.

Have you investigated the possibility of a bad O2 sensor? If it is fine when cold, then the problem starts when it is warmed up, then the O2 sensor may be bad. It should be throwong a code if that is the case. I'd recommend you do the stomp test to see if there are any codes stored in the DME and address them if there are.

Good luck.
Most problems are usually something simple !
