the noise might be from a loose bendix on the starter,
the bendix is a little gear in fron of the starter see if there is any visual point to see it nad make sure it keeps away from the flywheel if not have the starter repalced, this bendix have a spring to keep it away from the flywheel also with a flash ligh try to see the closes you can to the center of flywheel sometimes they get crack where they atached to the engine,
and on the shifting might be a bad transmission or the shifter has to be inspected for your mechanic

There are a couple of things that can cause this. First are you getting good quality starters? Are they really new or are they rebuilt? I would recomend a new AC Delco starter, and you can get them from some parts stores, not just a dealer. A starter relay can cause this too, replace it, it is inexpensive. The third possible cause would be the ignition switch, does it feel funny when you turn the key? The flywheel will nake a starter make unusual noise every time you crank the motor. As far as the keys, I have never heard of such, and I have been a GM mechanic for 20 years. Be sure you are getting a NEW starter. Good Luck

sounds like a starter solenoid went bad which it is easier to replace the whole starter assembly then just the solenoid and you can get one with a LLT Limited Life Time warranty.
