D is right on the clutch noise...
I copied this from another post I replied to. They all make that noise.

I know this sounds funny but the rattle is normal too. There is the clutch pressure plate, a bearing and a pin. The pin attaches to the clutch with the bearing, and (that arm that moves on top of the clutch cover) inside pulls the pin releasing the clutch. When the clutch lever is fully released, that pin starts to spin and the end rattles around in the arm piece that pulls it. That why it takes just a little pull on the clutch lever to get that to stop making noise. Just let it be a Honda and don't try to stop it from making that rattle. "
As for the shifting linkage pushing in, you either bent or broke the tab inside the engine that keeps that from happening. If it broke, It probably went down to the oil pan but the pump will not suck it up. There is a screen keeping that from happening and you might even get lucky, it might come out when you change the oil.
However, with the neutral switch problen and the shift linkage thing, I'd just fix it. If you live close, I'd help ya... most people are afraid of tearing into their engine but what you have isn't too bad. Hope this helpes.
