Sounds like a tranny rebuild? But clutch adjustment to start at lowest check point?

If you cannot get it out of gear when the engine is off then rock it back and forth while tring to shift into neutral. It sounds like you could have a linkage problem or worse the forks inside the trans could be bent. Hard to tell without taking it apart. Good luck hope you get it worked out.
