I would check the wires and clean the connectors and make sure seat switch is working. If that is not working, it's like getting off the seat without holding the brake/clutch pedal down or getting off seat with blades engaged. Both will cause engine to die.

transmission and shifting problems are tricky. from the limited information given, i'll go on assumptions - if this is a hydrostatic transmission, your brake is stuck, it will need to be adjusted - if it is a six speed, several factors come into play. if it will shift okay with the engine OFF, but not with it running, you have a belt problem. has the belt been replaced recently? is it the correct belt? is the belt routed correctly? if none of the above, check the belt guides to make sure that a stick or something hasn't poked up there and bent them. their purpose is to make the belt "blossom" away from the engine pulley so there is no tension on the belt at the transmission. if it won't shift with engine off, the shift shaft in the trans is probably rusted and sticking.

The gears are crossed up in the transmission.
You may get lucky if you try with the engine OFF,turning the trans pulley in the direction opposite of which the motor turns. This might unlock the internal gears.
Sorry for your problem. I know it is time to get the ground ready.

The solenoid does two things -- it closes an electrical contact to run the starter motor, and also pulls a lever to slide the motor gear up to engage the flywheel. Since the contact is closing, the solenoid itself must be OK, but the lever could be broken, or the sliding gear could be binding or stripped. Since you're looking at a probable replacement, try cleaning with compressed air, then squirting some WD-40 into the starter gear area - you could get lucky! Otherwise, you can replace the starter/solenoid assembly -- you can find replacements on eBay for about $80. Less expensive but more time consuming is to remove the assembly, disassemble, and replace just the defective parts if you can find them. Good luck! Please rate my answer if helpful, thanks.
