Transmission Issues - catching after hard brake


So I'm new here and please excuse me if this issue has been addressed somewhere else. I couldn't find it anywhere but feel free to point me to another thread. I have a v6 2010 mustang with an automatic transmission. I bought it from a Ford dealer in 2010 as it was coming off lease.

Around 70k miles (currently have 78k) I've started to experience what I guess is transmission issues.

When my car shifts from 2nd to 3rd gear it revs a little on the high side before engaging.

Also, if I have to brake hard and come to a full and complete stop, my car won't go. Sometimes it will stall, other times it will rev for 2-3 seconds before engaging in which I squeal my tires because I've given it too much gas.

I've had a mechanic look at my transmission and change out the fluid. No shavings in the fluid or signs of disrepair.

Anyone ever experience this or something similar?

Either the fluid is low, or there is excessive wear in the transmission, although it is far to early for that to normally occur.

When you put it into reverse from a stop, does it take a few seconds of delay to engage? That can indicate low fluid.

I had the fluid checked recently for shavings. There wasn't any, and the transmission fluid was replaced. It doesn't hesitate when going into reverse at all.

I have also what seems to be a kind of common ford issue that my back end makes substantial noise. Like you can here the gears actually turning. After looking through the forums it seems to be that the stock gears don't fit properly. Could they be locking after a hard brake?
