If the clutch is hard to depress - then this would likely cause gear changing to become more difficult/notchy - in that case with the clutch hard to depress you'll likely have an issue with either the release,throw out bearing or the pressure plate - as its those two components that clears the friction plate to enable smotther gear changing with the engine running - if the presure plate say wears or become weak then you get the increased effort in getting the clutch in that view and with what you describe it looking like another clutch assembly in need of fitting...
