First try lubricating the ignition tumbler assembly. Purchase a tube of spray graphite at any hobby store of department store. Spray inside the tumbler and then see if this helps. If the key you now have is severely worn a new key might solve the problem. If not, then you may need a new tumbler assembly.
Either there is too much tension on the steering lock mechanism or the tumblers have dropped, assuming you have the correct key. If it is the tumblers a Locksmith might be able to repair the ignition switch but a cheaper solution would most likely be to replace the ignition. You should be able to get a new ignition key assembly from Auto Zone or your local Auto Parts store or the dealer. You might consider getting the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle when you do to assist you with step by step instructions and diagrams.
If your key turns to the start position and won't start but will if clutched and you can't turn the key all the way back to get it out, then you need to have your floor shifter cable adjusted. The cable may even needs to be replaced. If your key looks good and not worn or you have tried a new key, you have a tumbler in the lock assembly sticking. You may try a very small amout of dry graphite to see if that will loosen the tumbler otherwise you will need someone see if new tumblers will fix the ignition lock or if you need a new ignition lock assembly. I would think it is most likely the cable though.
I didn't fully understand the problem earlier. It sounds like your ignition switch in the colum is bad or the tumbler assembly is so worn that it is not fully disabling the switch. Those parts together should run around 10-20 dollars apiece.
