The throw out bearing may be dry. If it's been going on for some time, the clutch fingers may be damaged which would require a total clutch replacement.

Why would the engine engage when the clutch pedal is almost all the way out? The car is 1991 corolla and the clutch fluid reservoir has needed to be refilled several times.

Sounds like you are loosing fluid because of a leaking slave cylinder or slave master cylinder. Air is probably entering the system through the leak, causing a weak clutch pedal, or your clutch plate is worn and also needs replacing. Have them both inspected and replaced if necessary.

Engine has no pull

I'm not sure what you mean by "the RPMs go way". If you meant that the RPM goes up high, then it sounds like the clutch is slipping. I think your model will have a hydraulic clutch, which is non-adjustable, so the clutch will need to be replaced. This sounds the most likely scenario, given the high clutch pedal take-up point you described. However, if you meant that the RPM's go away (or drop down), then it might be an ignition misfire, but I need more info.

Clutch goes to floor and stays

The trick to driving a manual transmission is giving gas very gently while letting the clutch up. The clutch only starts to engage when the pedal is about an inch and a half from the floor, so any gas you give before that will cause unecessary revving.
To get a feel for when the clutch engages, try the following excercise. Put the car in first gear and bring the clutch up ever so slowly without giving gas. At a certain point you will feel the clutch starting to engage and hear a difference in the sound of the engine. If you're bringing the clutch up too fast the car will stall. If you bring it up slowly enough the clutc will start to engage and you will begin to advance.
This excercise will develop your motor skill to manipulate the clutch effectively and will allow you to know exactly when to give gas when letting the clutch up.
