in the clutch set-up ? sounds like the clutch is not releasing from the flywheel, still letting some power thru to the gears while it is running. when it heats up, the metals expand enough to prevent proper dis-engagement ?
never mind, check the taillight fluid boiling point.

Inspect the clutch. Also look at the shifter mount bushings and linkage. Finally replace the cup bushings in the shifter.

I would always start with the things you can do before pulling the transmission. I have had manual transmission do similar things in the past related to transmission temperature. Mine turned out to be that I was using 80 90 weight motor oil vs. Synchromesh.
1st: I would confirm that it is all gears that won’t go in except reverse. Going into reverse has me thinking that it is internal and not the clutch or throw-out bearing.
2nd: I would take a look at the shift bar, and the rest of the bushings as above. It has to be pretty messed up to not shift or the bushings completely frozen, but that doesn’t work with temperature. You can visually inspect the bushings and have someone shift through the gears with car off. I cannot think of any heat difference in those external components.
3rd: Check the clutch cable adjustment. I have had that be out, but it would go in gear but act like an automatic with low fluid.
4th: Check to make sure the bottom seam of the transmission and engine is dry.
5th: Verify fluid levels; change fluid; check for particles in fluid.

how is the clutch pedal cold, where is the friction point low mid high?
did you try to lift the foot a little, on different clutch setup pressure plate finger can touch clutch disc and make it spin so lifting the foot a little should disengage the disc if it your issue
