sometimes when I'm in 5th gear and shifting down into 3rd or 2nd gear when making a turn, I can't shift into the gear, it seems like there's a block or something there from preventing me to shift into that gear. Is this normal? or is there something wrong with my transmission? or is it something else?

How many miles on your trans? Have you ever check the trans fluid (grease) in it. If that is low that will cause the blocking feeling and wear down the gears really quickly.

I've had that happen to me too, but only when I tried to shift down too early (imho). Like trying to shift down to 2nd while I was going 60mph. I figured it was some safety mechanism built in so I wouldn't pass redline if I completed the shift.
