1998 323is Questions/newbie

First problem I have is 5-speed transmission only going in 1st and 3rd gear. Car bought used yesterday and drove just fine, nothing noted except tough getting into reverse earlier today so I coasted it, shifted into first and then discovered 2nd gear problem then 4th gear problem.

Second problem is a height issue. I am 6-03 and have a sunroof. I am a slouchy sitter when I drive anyway but when I do put the seat straight up, my head hits the sunroof. Seat is down as far as I can make it go. Is there an aftermarket seat or even a way to bolt down a racing seat with high density foam to the floor for added headroom?
Thanks for the help
