The EGR passages are clogged up solid. Unbolt the throttle body to be able access the EGR tube, use a coat hanger to clean out the tube. To prove that the passages are clogged would require you to attach a scan tool that you do not have and command the EGR valve on and see the engine stall out or run very rough and if after commanding the EGR valve to open while idling the engine runs with little or no change, this confirms that the passages are clogged. So that being said, just trust me, the passages are your cause with a near 100% probability.
