A few anoying problems you may be able to help with?

I have an old Renault Espace 2000-1 Quadra (Propshaft removed) with what I hope are common problems with other cars. I bought it second hand with no service history but it was cheap and I could haul the family around.
The first problem (That wasn’t a problem on the test drive) is that when I select reverse gear I get a grinding noise before it goes in. When I select first and second gear it is very stiff and difficult to select. The other gears seem a little stiff but not a problem at the moment.
I have also noticed that when I am driving along, if I turn slightly to the right, I have a horrible broken noise coming from the passenger’s side front wheel. The springs and bushes look fine. The noise only happens when I steer right and it is difficult to describe. The best way I can describe it is a large heavy ball in a washing machine.
Another not so critical problem is no heat comes out of the blowers, if I turn the temperature to cold; it gets cold but hot is not even warm but very lukewarm.
Could any of you, if possible, give me some idea of what the problems might be? I have no money and want to try and make repairs myself?

Thanks in advance
