i'v noticed that all my gears on my 5spd now take quite a bit of effort to get into, so i'm hopping that the problem is due to a lack of tranny oil. I am praying that that is the case for my 2nd gear, it grinds very hard when i try to shift from first or downshift from third

drain the trans lube into a clean pan and use a magnet to find any shavings. sounds like overhaul/replacement time.

alright, is draining the lube like an oil change? or does it require some more skill?

drain plug on the bottom, fill plug on the left side. be sure you can get the fill plug out before you drain, it can be a bitch.
