sounds like the shift cables are corroded or seized, forcing the shift may have bent the linkage. inspect and replace the shift cables and inspect the cable bracket, bend back into shape if required :)

the rpm should go up before gear change, if the delay is not too long, then thats normal, however check to make sure your transmission fluid is at the proper level, you may also want to flush the transmission and add new fluid and filter.

Try to jump-start the car.
Clean/repalce battery terminals.
If that won't do, you would need a better, fully chaged battery to at least get current to the shifter, and releasing it.
Get to the fuse box, and replace any broken fuse.
