My truck is holding first gear and shifts very ruff. IT also barely wants to move. yesterday i tried to go up a hill that was maybe 4 feet above the road and i had to back up and go around. The transmission fluid is not low so is this a sign that the tranny is going out?

from the sound of it, since you said you couldn't make it up the hill. it sounds to me like the torque converter is bad. the reason i say that is that has happened to me before. i could rev the car in "D" and eventually it wouldn't even move.

as far as swapping to a manual. the best thing to do is find a vehicle in a junkyard just like yours except its a manual, and swap the parts over. Warning "some cutting, drilling and welding may be required"

check the color of your transmission fluid. when ours went out, it was black/silver and there were metal shavings on the dipstick.

I switched the fluid and filter, the old fluid was dark brown almost black and had some shavings. I also changed the fuel filter and put some additive in it and the power is better but it still wont shift some times.
