I've heard of people putting kyb gas-a-just shocks on the front of their mustang and putting kyb gyb-2(I think thats what they're called) shocks in the rear. Why not put the same on all four corners of the car??

The KYB-2 shocks are a little softer. Many people who want a smooth ride do not like the Normal KYB Gas-a-Just shocks because they are pretty stiff.
The car should handle better with 4 Gas-A-Justs. Mine did.

anyway, would gas adjust shocks be as rough as they are made out to be if my suspension is original and worn out?

You need to re-build that "worn out" suspension.
The shocks might help a little though.

I plan on replacing the bushings...but the coil springs and the leaf springs are original and worn out. Would gas-a-justs on the front and kyb-2 shocks on the rear be a good comprimise for handling and ride for my particular car?
