Today I took some pictures with Leica M6 and wanted to remove film without finishing the film so tried to wind on. Problem, I fear, cannot do anything now, film not rewound and cannot take it forward either.
Film still on 'teeth'.but nothing happening. Have tried nothing else but am worried that I have a big problem.

The r series are notorious for inferior parts,first have a CLA done by a professional,and if a (clean,lubricate,adjustment) doesnt solve the problem then actual repairs will be necessary for repair by a qualified Leica Service Center
Given the very high value of your camera it's definitely not a DIY repair. Although a professional repair will not be cheap, it will definitely make economic sense compared to the cost of replacing your M6, so send it to your nearest official Leica servicing agent.
Leica IIIc was made for many years. the bottom of the camera comes off by twisting the flip style finger shackle. The film take up spool must be removed to attach the film to it. pull the film out at the same whidth of the camera and insert. It seems like a tetious task although owning a Leica makes it well worth it
I can't say whether your specific camera / lens combination will work, but bear in mind all teleconverters result in some loss of image sharpness (especially 2X models.) You will also lose about 2 stops of light.
Sigh... There's just no real alternative for big, fast glass :-)
remove the lens, inside and up in the top you will see the the lens port, is it dirty. clean it with a lens cleaner. and some cameras ( I don't exactly know this one) has a focus near the back viewfinder for folks that wear glasses.
