With all due respect, it needs servicing. Take it to a dealer.

Hard to shift from neutral to frist gear and back to neutral

Usually this is caused by either of two things. The first thing is that your clutch is dragging and needs to be adjusted. I'd tell you how to do that but you didn't tell me what year or model bike you're working on. The next thing is too much oil in the primary. If the oil level is too high, oil gets between the clutch disc when it's disengaged and acts like transmission fluid in a torque converter in an automatic transmission. It will put pressure on the clutch even though it is disengaged causing your transmission to shift past neutral every time you try to find it.

Good Luck

No power backing up driveway

Check the gear box oil level....I'm thinking that you have a auto box....this should be done on level ground and with the engine running at idle speed....To check level correctly place your foot onto the brake hard and also select the parking brake....With the engine running, move the selector lever from park into reverse and then to neutral then to 'D', followed by the lower range gears and then moving up to 'D', and then to neutral again and then to reverse and back to neutral....Leave each position engaged for about one second....Leaving the engine running and the park brake engaged check that the gear box oil is at the correct level....It should be between the marks indicated on the red topped dip stick....When filling with Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) through the same tube where dip stick is located the engine should also be running and care taken not to over fill....Once at the correct level the vehicle should behave normally.

Where is transmision fluid level check

You do not say if it is a manual or auto.

Manual - The level fill plug is left hand side looking up at the gear box from underneath on your back, head at the engine end. Undo on level ground or a ramp if possible. You will need a imperial socket/spanner set.
When you undo the upper plug, which is about the middle of the box, you should find a clear red oil in side, is just below the thread level. You will not see this so use a pencil as a dip stick, only putting in an inch, do not let go of it, and if you find that the level is low check seals. If less than 1/4 inch don't worry.

Top as needed with gear box oil see owners hand book, or your local autostore. If if brown or milky coff coloured it is in need of replacement and any problems such as water ingress will need to be identified.

Autos is easy, dip stick in the engine bay up by the bulk head......though you will need to run the engine at some stage of checking this, and use you hand brake, engine in neutral. There is an oil filler tube to top to amke life a bit easier.

Auto transmission slips in 1st and 2nnd gears gearbox jumps into gear upon gearing down 1994 excel

Check the fluid level first,either too low a level or too high a level can cause erratic shifting and also if the oil smells as if its burnt there could be internal damage to clutches and brake bands.The fluid would be the first thing to chech anyway with the car driven and warmed up first and then check the oil level in neutral while car is idling.

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse

first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.
