When trasn skips 2nd gear, does the OD indicator light blinks on the dash?
Line pressure = trans internal problem. If line pressure is present and 2nd gear is not selscted, it means the clutches are leaking internally resulting in no engagement.
Revving in neutral works might mean there is line pressure or fluid problem.
It is difficult to explain your problem why it is happening but as mentioned earlier, it could have been a design flaw which would have many trans of the same batch having similar problem. That explains the possibility of 2 trans giving the same fault. Was the replacement trans a used unit or rebuilt? After replacement were the symptoms/fault similar?
The other possibility is the valve body. The valves are sticking and not shifting.
You mentioned the engine mount change prior to it happening. If it is electrical, the engine mount replacement could have dislodged, unloosensed or damaged some wire couplers. However thsi would normally be indicated by the OD light blinking.
Maybe a second opinion might get you somewhere.
