Gear shift won't shift gears, but gear shift moves (slides) up & down. But I can shift it under the hood by moving the lever.

i had the same problem and it was the gear shift cable had broken. easy to repair, costs around 70.00, must get at ford garage ( auto parts stores do not carry), might want to get someone young and spry to get under the dash to replace.
Sounds like something in the steering column broke, call your local body shop and ask who they use for steering column repairs.
