for the past 3 months, there has been a terrible "moaning and groaning" noisse that is made when I am shifting/driving in low gears--1st and 2nd. it sounds horrible. the best way to describe it is it literally sounds like it's moaning or groaning when I am shifting or driving at very low speeds.

Noises can be difficult to diagnose even when you have the car in your shop and you can hear the noise, without hearing the noise, it is impossible. I can only recommend taking it to a shop, or have someone try to create the noise while the car is stopped and listen for where the noise is coming from, so basically diagnose the problem or have someone else do it. Some problems are too difficult to address online, sorry. Good Luck.
