Barometric pressure sensor is your manifold absolute pressure sensor. Same thing. It is one of the sensors that reports to the ECU to help it determine the volume of intake air and subsequently how much fuel should be added. It would explain your lack of power if it was bad, but make sure everything is hooked up correctly and you have continuity between the sensor and the ECU before you go throwing parts at it. A simple chilton/hayes repair manual should get you on the right track.
When ignorance is bliss, to be wise is folly.
