Well at least nn a car, you need a clutch because the engine spins all the time and the car wheels don't. In order for a car to stop without killing the engine, the wheels need to be disconnected from the engine somehow. The clutch allows us to smoothly engage a spinning engine to a non-spinning transmission by controlling the slippage between them...

Yes. A F1 car has a clutch. It is not like a normal clutch that you see in a normal road car.

No, the throw out bearing in a clutch is needed to keep an disengaged clutch spinning. you can drive a car with a bad throwout bearing if you don't use the clutch By "floating the gears".

What should you do to replace clutch will not shift in to gears?

I would first check the master cylinder, and slave cylinder. Not knowing anything about the auto, most use hydraulics to release and engage the clutch.
