Lots of things can go wrong with a bike. Some are minor, some are major. Your problem is on the very major side. Guessing what happened is useless in this case. The engine will need to be torn down and inspected. The cam chain may have broken and wrapped up on the crank, busting the center case in the process. A gear may have broken apart. You may wind up needing a new engine. The good part is that you will have a lot of spare parts left over.
You have a bent shift fork. The repair means taking the engine out of the frame then removing the top end, removing the flywheel and electrics, removing the clutch , shift mechanism and kick starter and a few other parts. THEN you are ready to split the gearbox to remove the gears and then the bent shift fork. Next you get to put it all back together. This is a pretty big job for the home mechanic.
You will need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter and torque wrench plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into such an involved project.
Please rate this answer, (even though it's not what you wanted to hear). :-)
There are also 2 separate drains/fillers one for the transmission and the othe for the crankcase . The measure is 620 ml per side, although some guys run up to 700 ml on the transmission. 10W-40 is the correct weight for the engine side. On the trans side a Transmission specific oil in an 80W or 85W grade. Maxima Extra full synthetic is the best oil you can buy for the engine. MaximaMTL is the best for transmissions.
