I put the wrong key in the ignition, now when I put the right key in, the ignition wont turn at all

Try some WD -40 in the key hole. Spray a good bit in to remove any metal deposits.

there is a safety switch on the clutch so the vehicle will not start in case it is in gear , hence the reason for putting your foot on the clutch.

My key gets stuck in the ignition and my car wont start I have been able to jump it with my clutch

If your key turns to the start position and won't start but will if clutched and you can't turn the key all the way back to get it out, then you need to have your floor shifter cable adjusted. The cable may even needs to be replaced. If your key looks good and not worn or you have tried a new key, you have a tumbler in the lock assembly sticking. You may try a very small amout of dry graphite to see if that will loosen the tumbler otherwise you will need someone see if new tumblers will fix the ignition lock or if you need a new ignition lock assembly. I would think it is most likely the cable though.

Put in key it wont turn.

sounds like you have a frozen lock cylinder. you can try spraying some wd-40 or lube into the key slot and tapping on the ignition and it might free up temporarily but you will most likely have to replace the lock cylinder
