Sorry you are having the problem with your car. I have attached the troubleshooting chart for the problems you are stating.
Will Not Shift Into One Gear, Shifts Into All Others Bent shift fork, Worn detent balls
Locked Into Gear, Cannot Shift Clutch adjustment, Worn detent balls
Pressure springs worn or Release pressure plate
Oily, greasy or worn facings Clean or replace clutch disc
Incorrect clutch alignment Realign clutch assembly
Warped clutch disc or pressure plate Replace damaged components
Binding release levers or clutch pedal Lubricate and/or replace release components
Now you also have a clutch master and slave cylinder. These get wore out and loose fluid. They work like your brake master cylinder.
My suggestion is to first look at these two items and make sure they have plenty of fluid. See if there is fluid leaking around them. These would be my first item.
Then my next item would be the clutch is worn and needs replacing. I would take it to a few reputable shops and get an estimate and see what if they state the same.
