Th problem is not in the flushing handle. You have a problem in the out take. Chances are there is something in the trap as it is taking the waste out OR your flapper is closing up too fast in the tank thus not allowing enough water into the bowl.
Take off the top lid and look at the flush handle mechanism. You'll see a not that holds it onto the tank. Tighten the nut so it is snug. Don't overtighten it or you could crack the tank. Next inspect the chain that goes between the end of the flush handle rod and the flapper valve. It should lift the flapper all the the way up when you operate the handle.
Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.
I hope this helps.

Your going to the wrong store instead of home depot Try Ace hardware they will have the parts you need there.Also some of the new toilets have a flapper valve that has a hole in them and they don't work very good so replace the flapper valve with one without a hole in the flapper and one that has a float on it this way the float will hold the toilet open long enough to flush and not stop in the middle of flushing. The handle should be a standard handle. If you need more help ask and I will give you more information.
Make sure the flapper is holding water in tank. if it is leaking, then when you go to flush there is not enough of water to flush. to check for leaking flapper,take a pack of kool-aid and dump it into tank of toilet. dont flush toilet. let set for 10-15 mins. if the flapper is leaking,the color of kool-aid will show up in bowl. hope this helps.
You have two issues inside of the toilet tank. The holding down the button is caused by your chain not being tight enough from the handle to the flapper. Take the slack out of that and replace the flapper. The second is that you need to replace the fill valve. This is what is making the noise when the tank is being refilled, and will have to be adjusted after it is installed.
