Question about Hyundai Motor 2004 Accent
In cold almost impossible to shift thru all gears. Sometimes does ok by putting in neutral, letting clutch out then with clutch in shifting into next gear. Ok to use another gear oil besides recommended 75w/90?
Check your clutch fluid level in the clutch master cylinder's reservoir. If low add brake fluid. If very low or dry, the clutch hydraulic system should be bled to remove air in the line. Bleeding is done down at the clutch slave cylinder on the transaxle.
I would not recommend using a lighter oil. It may cause early wear of the transmission.

The clutch bearing is supposed to have a groove on the inside where it slides on the shaft That groove is supposed to have a heavy grease applied to it to prevent the bearing running dry on the collar it slides on.Regardless of your driving style, that grease is intended to remain there for the life of the clutch, (generally every clutch I have ever replaced still had some remaining lube there unless the bearing itself failed from a material defect which caused it to overheat and cause that grease to then run out of the retaining groove) I'm not there and can't see the old parts, but in my opinion the first clutch may have failed partially because of your lack of skill in using a stick shift vehicle but the second failure obviously is not your fault if the information you have posted is correct.

Most likely the o-ring seal between the torque converter and the transmission is going bad. Get that transmission rebuilt pronto before serious damage is done! But first, have a mechanic drop the transmission pan and look for signs of a very thin silvery film coating the inside of the pan. If found, then the transmission definitely will have to be rebuilt, and the torque converter will also have to be replaced since embedded metallic particles in the old torque converter will eventually come loose, due to wear of the clutch plates within the torque converter, and eat up the rebuilt transmission. Now, here is the deal once the transmission has been rebuilt:
Change the transmission fluid and filter once a year -- no matter what! If you do this, then you should never have any more problems with the transmission.
