In short I think you nailed it with it needing a clutch as these are all clear signs that the clutch is not fully disengaging which means you slave cylinder/throw out bearing are not releasing the clutch.

Here are a number of guides that talk about this in more detail and how to repair it:

We are going to have to rely on these guides and this video as the manual does not provide much detail at all on how to do this:
