Bite the bullet and pull the transmission to see what you've got bound up, because something is definitely bound up between the crankshaft and transmission. If you can't turn it with a wrench on the crank pulley bolt, it's never going to spin over with the starter.

No transmission/torque converter connected: engine spins freely

Trans/TQ attached: engine won't spin

It's pretty obvious something isn't attached correctly.
