Have you confirmed that the shifter is actually moving the shifter fork on the side of the tranny? assuming of course that this is an automatic ?
After checking this,,have you checked your tranny fluid level ?

I have a Toyota Celica 1995 2.2 L manual transmission when the engine is "hot' or it has been running for a while, is hard to Go into 2, downshift from 3 to 2 also sometimes struggles to go into rever

The tranny is probably on the way out. The synchronizers are what synchonize the spinning shafts and gears inside the tranny by braking and trying to match the speed of one shaft to another. If they are worn, they will have trouble.Also check the oil level on the old tranny. You might find it is low on oil and you might be able to buy some time. You could try draining the transmission when it is warm. Look at the oil and if it is loaded with a metallic sheen or worse: with particles, the tranny is toast and not worth repairing so just have a good used low mile tranny put in. Pretty cheap job and easy with a 4 cyl engine. As a last desperation, you might try putting in some synthetic tranny oil like amsoil or Royal purple. But if the synchros are shot, so is the tranny. Make sure you drain the junkyard tranny to check for particles before throwing it in. If it is full of metal,take it back. On second thought, put that synthetic tranny oil in the junkyard tranny. Tranny oil should be changed very 50 to 100 K and if you or someone grinds gears, even more often!

I have a 1997 suburban and it's makeing a whining/grinding sound when I crank it and when I put it in drive and revers and when I take off from a red light the sound is comein from the transmission what...

Sounds bad,pull the tranny dipstick,engine off and look at the fluid, if it's black or smells burnt the tranny has to come out for repair or replacement. I suspect the front pump.

I lost my 5th and revers gears in my tranny

Time for a rebuild on the tranny, one of the shift forks has broken. Only other thing it could be is linkage being way out of adjustment.
