Thc Clutch is hydrulic controlled if you have a leak and have lost the fluid the clutch is not going to work and the reason it goes into gear with the engine off is the transmission is not operating and can easily go into gears because there is no syncronizers needed to help mesh the gears.
Or the clutch is bad does the clutch pedal feel normal? If so the clutch needs to be replaced

Car stuck in first gear wont shift at all

Suspect the clutch is frozen and even when you press the pedal it does not disengage. If it shifts into other gears without the engine running. you will need to break the clutch free. Put it is high gear with the clutch depressed and rock the car back and forth with a bunch of friends pushing on it.

part of a clutch job is removing the gearlever make sure the lever is secured properly and selects the gear correctly.
Orherwise your symptoms sound like a collapsed pressure plate or broken release bearing either defective part or something done wrong during installation of clutch

As I would drive the 2000 ford focus I'm not sure if it was the clutch or the transmission but its like the car would go to a lower gear for a minute and then catch back up. Then I happened to be driving...

I believe it's your clutch. If you can shift gears okay with the engine off, but you cannot shift gears with the engine running, (the gear shifter only grinds when trying to shift into first?) then your clutch has worn out.
To replace a clutch, the transaxle has to be first removed from the car. I'm afraid you will have to have it towed to a shop or garage.

Some of that model had an unusual clutch mechanism, which has probably broken due to wear. Read here

In the event yours is instead fitted with a hydraulic clutch, either

- the hose has split
- the clutch throwout lever has broken or collapsed

After being stored clutch willnot engage

do you mean wont disengage? does the pedal feel normal, or like its pushing nothing?cant put it in gear? or goes in gear but wont move?. if you put it in gear but car wont move, the clutch is toasted. if you can put it in gear with the engine off, but not when its running, check the clutch master fluid. if its low or out, then the slave or master is leaking and you will need to replace both. if the clutch arm IS working, and the pedal feels normal, sometimes you can put in gear, and start it with the clutch pedal depressed and drive it, and goose the gas to "break the disc loose"
