It sounds like a shift solenoid is giving you the problem. Many times when an electronic part is about to take a dump you get the indication of a problem but the check engine light may not illuminate and pop a code. Second posibility may be an issue with your torque converter. Best bet would be to have it checked by a 'reputable' transmission shop to locate the issue and get a quote for a repair.

It sounds like it is a linkage issue between the lock cylinder and the ignition switch. The ignition switch is located on the steering column and there is usually a rod that connects the lock to the switch. These switches have some adjustment, so you should be able to loosen the bolts and move the switch up the column. Just remove the panels below the steering column and look for a bunch of wires plugged in towards the bottom of the steering column.

starter motors are known to developed dead bars in the commutator whee the brush sitting directly over the bar will no complete the circuit
However just rolling the car with out working the starter will not move the starter to a new position
what you can do is remove the starter and have it bend tested and the brushes inspected
The first place to check is the neutral and park switches for adjustment or correct operation
could be a simple loose wire to the starter
