When it is in park the rear wheels should not turn. Maybe its not actually going all the way into park. Is the shifter loose?

putting it into park has nothing to do with brakes... sounds like there is a shifter issue or a parking brake gear issue... i would look at the shifter first... cuz thats somthing you need sorted out ASAP!

Given the potential for damage to your car AND other people's property, I'd recommend taking the car to someone that already knew the transmission had nothing to do with the brakes... It's good to learn and everybody needs to start somewhere but let safety issues be fixed by someone who knows.

Um, think it depends on the meaning of the word "moves". Any auto trans car will move an inch or two when placed in park on a slope, because the parking pawl locks a gear wheel inside the transmission, not the brakes. There is a little free movement in this gear, then of course whatever movement is available in the rest of the drivetrain.
