rotate crankshaft in a clockwise direction until both timing marks are aligned together on both camshaft gears and the crankshaft timing mark aligns with mark on the block just behind the crankshaft gear. you may need to rotate the crankshaft gear several times before you can get all the timing marks to align. once you have done this then insert a allen wrench in the hole on the belt tensioner and a small drill bit or a small allen wrench in the smaller hole. take the largr allen wrench and apply pressure counterclockwise until the small drill bit or allen wrench slides into locking hole to hold the belt tensioner in place. install belt and release the tensioner. (note: before starting work on engine remove the negative cable from battery).

Most mechanics would pull the spark plugs and check the compression in the cylinders, but usually anyone with a trained ear can tell by the sound of the starter when cranking against the compression of each cylinder. Many of the smaller engines today have valving designed so that when they are out of time, the pistons interfere with them. That means two objects try to take up the same space at the same time and at minimum the valves bend. Worse case scenario would be upper head/camshaft damage and possible piston damage. That's pretty severe. You won't know until you get the valve cover off or maybe deeper. Hope that helps.

Sounds like it could be worn gear linkages, which would stop you from being able to push the gearstick in to the reverse gate (usually by pushing the gear stick down or pulling a lever up under it). If you can get under the car take a look, there should be a set of joined poles leading out from where your gear lever is, check that all the connections on these are reasonably tight.
