Sounds like you have a worn out shift fork.

Jumps out of 5th gear

ensure that the gear selector is allowed full movement for full engagement
possible gear synchro dogs teeth are worn and not fully engaging
possible housing is misaligned or rear bearing failure
check for metal bits on the plug magnet
it may require a box out for a partial repair

What is wrong with my 1998 ford courier clutch not engaging?

check for loss of fluid in the clutch system
Yore question contradicts your question
If the clutch is not engaging ( slipping or no drive when in gear) it is the clutch master cylinder that has a blocked compensating port and needs replacing
ON the next statement you say that with the clutch pedal fully depressed you grate the gears and that is the clutch not disengaging
either way you have the answer for what ever it is that you have

New gear shift lever fitted, now cant get it out of low box when low gear is engaged without turning off the engine, grates loudly.

Gear shift grommets/bushings may be worn or not aligned properly. If grinding, gear is not fully engaged. Check above items to correct, if doesn't correct, may have transmittion problem.

Gets stuck between 4th and 5th

The shift rail fork ends are likely worn. There are fork contact/wear pads that ride in the gear shift sliding collars, and over time, or from low gearbox oil levels/insufficient lubrication, these pads wear, allowing "slop" and preventing the gears from engaging fully. I'd check the brngs, synchro rings and the dog clutch teeth, too. If you see metal/brass or aluminum shavings in the case drain plug, oil or on the bottom of the gearcase...that isn't a good sign. This sounds like a trans issue, not a clutch issue.

Jumps out of 5th gear on the highway

Either you have a worn shift fork and fifth is not fully engaging or the synchro for that gear is worn Both are internal and if fork is worn I suggest you have synchro replaced as well..
