I think you are on to something in that the bearing may be bad even though you can't put enough beef on it by hand to make it spin. Do you have any way to put more force on it like using a strap wrench or something? If not, just replace the bearing like you planned and see how it works.
Also, to determine direction of rotation, you need to be looking at the clutch from the proper side, and there must be some information in the manual indicating which side of the clutch you are supposed to be looking at when determining direction of rotation.
