transmission problems

i'm a new member as of today. i've owned a 96 prelude for 3 years and a 99 prelude for 2. (traded the 96 for the 99)

i started having clutch problems a year ago; nothing major, just a weird vibe at first, then some clunking sounds when id start from a stop in reverse or first, then grinding gears. i figured the cylinders were going and the clutch just wasnt releasing the flywheel but friends and family told me otherwise and i listened, sadly. now theres significant damage to every synchro because of it. i fixed the cylinders earlier today and i can get out of a gear at 4k+ rpm but it still grinds if i don't rev match every gear.

the shop suggested looking at junk yards for another tranny or looking for a rebuilt one. he said he wasnt going to touch it because the parts are too hard to find and too expensive / wasn't worth it.
im just wondering what my options are at this point and how i should go about them or if anyone can help point me in the right direction.
