Question Manual gears blocked/grinding...

So my manual 1997 F-250 4x4 has a few shifting issues.
1st, 2nd & 5th gears shift great.

3rd gear is stiff to get into gear: I upshift & it feels like it's "blocked" for a second before it slides into gear with no grinding then the shift is smooth.

From neutral (coasting) to 4th gear sometimes grinds.

At a dead stop reverse grinds randomly about 10% of the time for seemingly no rhyme or reason.

I just bought the truck & have not had a chance to check the transmission fluid yet. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

After watching a bunch of troubleshooting videos online it seems that I need to change out the transmission oil first before I do anything major like getting a new clutch, flywheel &/or synchros.

Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks.
