Fortunately, our good yard does nationwide searches and will ship cheap. As far as the welding, what I know is how easy it is to go into a seizure when I have strobing lights in my face
I got another issue, is there a way I can check, tighten, and install(possibly missing) Flywheel bolts without total teardown and separation of my transmission?
It's quiet easy for you to pull the cover and check them!

If you have a manual which you do because you said flywheel. You gotta pull the clutch off to get to the flywheel bolts that are then underneath the clutch.
I went to a tranny shop this morning and had the owner ride with me. I was hoping he'd be wrong about needing a rebuild or replacement, $1000 or $1700. I did my own clutch, but I guess if it were the flywheel, my clutch would show signs by acting up. And as I said before, if you ignore the sound, you'd never know anything was wrong.
It looks like I'll be getting a new transmission. I can do the install myself with a buddy. It'll be one more thing marked off the list of neverdoneit. The sound is getting worse by the day, so I just hope it'll get here soon enough to keep me from being stranded. I really don"t wanna see what could happen if it locks up on me.
In my attempt to avoid the problem, I've been using neutral a hell of a lot more lately while coasting or slowing down.
I went to the transmission shop to get the diagnostic check done before I pulled the trigger on buying a transmission. Up on the rack, in gear, 4hi, nothing can be heard except a light grinding in the rear axle.
So I keep telling the the guy at the tranny shop, "I don't know anything about this ****, THAT'S WHY I CAME TO YOU!" And then he says, "Well, pull the rear diff cover and see if the problem is there."
UH, I DONT KNOW WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR! They'd best not plan on charging me $85 to figure out nothing.

Pull the cover and check for metal and anything that looks like it shouldn't. Don't take it to a shop and have them do it they'll charge you everything you got.
