Shifting is hard. Pretty much have to force it in gear unless I pump the clutch pedal continuously. Been told I have to replace my clutch. Not 100 percent trustworthy of that mechanic. Bipoint is pretty low to floor. Might be air in my clutch lines. I have no clue. Please help.

My car has a manual transmission.
This may suggest the transmission synchros may be wearing out. Your transmission has small gear synchronizer rings that help to move the transmission in and out of the various gears. When these begin to wear out, you may notice it hard to shift in and out of gears as you describe. You may also occasionally hear a bit of a grinding sound when trying to shift from gear to gear. I would recommend having an expert from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your transmission.
