weird rpms / idle hanging? Is this normal?

My car feels weird. I just bought used it and its my first focus zx3

I've been reading and some people say this is normal but I decided to post a video just in case

So, the car is already warm, I start it and rev's up and down fine until 1200 rpms and then seems to hang for a WHILE before getting back to 800 rpms.

Also when driving I let off the throttle for lets say 10 seconds, then when I press the cluth to shift down the engine REVs up about 200-400 rpms on its own.

Also when driving when I let off the throttle to slow down (on gear but without breaking ) the engine seems to hang at 2000 rpms for a LONG time

Are these things normal? if not any ideas of what could be wrong?

When I bought it (already felt like this) I cleaned the throttle body, run some seafoam, and tried finding vacuum leaks without luck.
