Its my first car but I learned to drive manual recently and I love it and my v6 mustangs transmission blew out so I feel like its a sign but my question is is manual swapping worth it or no and would it be more to manual swap or just replace the automatic transmission?!

If you have a shop do it, you'll need to show up with every since bolt, harness, bracket, etc that you will need. Many won't chase parts for you, and many parts will be junkyard part that will take some time to round up. At the end of the day, it might be cheaper to sell your car and buy a manual trans car or just fix the automatic

If you could do it yourself i'd say go for it. I did it to my car and it was a fun project and a great end result
