Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant
Vibrating sound was noticed during neutral position of the transmission, but when clutch is press and gear was engaged it vanish.
Sounds to me that the shifter broke, i believe the shifter has a ball end that slips into a pocket in trans. that moves for gear selection and that ball brook off end of shifter. if its got a linkage set up most likely samething either shifting arms came off or shifter broke where linkage rods connect.

It is possible that your differential could be making the sound. However, if the sound disappears when putting the trans in neutral, I would suspect that the differential should still be making noise. If the torque converter is worn, then you would have noise while in gear, but probably not as noticeable while in neutral. Depending on the production date of your car, 2000-early2001 Z3 had an issue with the torque converters.

if you can move it into gear when its not running, id say clutch,
but if it wont go in at all, then Im thinking shift forks or linkage

I take it's a manual transmission, and if that's the case, if the engine is running, and you difficulty changing gears, either the mechanical synchronizer of the transmission or master or slave cylinder is malfunctioning. This is further discussed in this handy diagnostic artice:
Here's another article discussing the car being stuck in one gear, which may give some complementary background information for you, specifying four probable causes of it:
This should help.
