First things i would check, fluid levels. From there on in I might venture to say your reverse drum inside the transmisson is done. But all this is going out on a limb, auto fwd transmissons are a compleatly different nature. My suggestion, take it in to a good reputable transmission shop. ..

I also wonder if it could be a linkage problem? If the gear selector says Reverse, but it isnt quite engaged because of slack or play in the shifter cable?

Thats sounds a lot like a problem revolving around the Parking Prawl.... There is a rod that goed from the drivers side of the tranny to the Passenger side of the trans that actuates the parking gear... Something sounds messed up... I had a friend that had a hard time getting on into park, forcing it destroyed some parts in the trans, getting out of park wasn't smooth either...

Not 100% whats happening there...

Most likely you will need to take it to a shop... It could be as simple as the cable, or if its what we talked about then it will most likely require a rebuild..

Next time before you put it in park, Pull the shifter to first and then to park and see if it goes any easier...

see what a good reputable shop has to say on it...
