SOURCE: Pops out of 5th gear

This is most likely not a linkage issue. This is an internal transmission issue. Inside the transmission there are some brass pieces that synchronize the gears when you depress the clutch. This is also a tell tell sign that the one between 4th and 5th gear is worn out or completely chewed up. The transmission will need to be repaired or completely rebuilt depending on how much damage has been done to the internal components. sorry about delivering bad news but that's the facts on vehicles that have been driven hard. Hope this information helps you. Good luck.

SOURCE: parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds

You may want to revisit those rear brakes to make sure the parking brake linkage is hooked up properly. There is usually a spring that needs to go over the parking brake linkage and make sure the cross bar is facing the right direction and holds both the shoes and the parking brake linkage.

Why does my 2003 Kia Rio have hard time going into 1st, 2nd, & sometimes reverse? Unless I press REALLY ******* clutch.

The clutch system in the Kia rios of those years are clutch cables, not hydraulic. There is no need for clutch fluid. Have a mechanic look at your clutch cable tension.
If it turns out to be a tranny prob thank Korea for building cheap cars.

I backed up a small hill in my 2002 Kia Rio and it popped out of reverse. Now when I back up it pops out. The other gears seem to be fine. Have I bent something? Thanks for any help/suggestions on...

This is usually indicative of a clutch problem but is more likely to be the clutch if you have an automatic. If you have a standard it isn't locking in reverse like it should. To go into reversein the standard you have to activate that secondary lockout, pull up on the lever or something like that in most cases, to get it all the way into gear. That lockout also drops back down once your into reverse and in a case where it doesn't drop back down you can pop out of gear. Another thing is in some cases you actually engage the Reverse gear before the selector is fully into the gear and it doesn't lock in. I don't own a Rio and haven't had to personally fix this problem in the past so I'm not sure which system you have if you have a manual transmission but most foreign cars built since 1999 have this incorporated in some way and I have seen this in other vehicles causing the exact problem you are describing. If you have an Automatic you need to take it to a shop and get it repaired. If you have a standard you need to get it repaired but could make due for a period if your careful and make sure you hold that shifter in the Reverse gear range.

Hard to get in first gear makes noises going into

synconizers or shift fork bent, but most likely your throw out bearing is not dissengageing your pressure plate al the way. check your clutch linkage.
