Have the u joints, transmission mount and half shafts inspected. These would be the most likely problems. Let me know what you find. I would use a trusted technician in your area to at least inspect it. If this is something you want to tackle, let me know that too.

It could be a loose/failed engine or transmission mount. Look at the tranny rear mount and check the bolts and condition. Also check the bell housing bolts AND the bolts connecting the engine flywheel to the clutch pressure plate.

I would suggest that you check the engine mounts as it sounds like there is an engine reaction and the mounts are not good enough to control the engine . The noise could be from the exhaust hitting the body because of the engine movement.

Grinds into 2nd gear and sometimes won't go into 2nd gear. Also noise in 1st gear

sounds like the synchro mesh is shot, look at rebuilt transmission , usually cheaper than the gears them selves.

What you need to check is the transmission release bearing because if there is a clearance on the release bearing you will encounter this problem and also check the transmission oil.
