2005 Civic, 5MT, 150K. In pretty good shape w/ very few issues so far.

Sounds like a huge baseball card is in the spokes of a really big wheel when the motor is running. This sound goes away completely with the clutch pedal pushed in. Not bad at all in 1st and 2nd gear, gets loud in other gears, quieter under load.

It was getting to the time that I was considering a clutch replacement anyway. So should I get the clutch, throwout and input shaft bearing done? Get seals done while in there? Maybe a low mileage/ rebuilt tranny?

Car is a runner and the GF doesn't want to sell/trade in.

With that mileage, might as well do a clutch while it is out.. I would probably do a mainshaft bearing while you're at it, the bearing isn't too expensive. The problem with getting another used transmission is that you could end up with the same thing.

yes no point in just swapping in used parts.
These transmissions are known for bearings going bad in them. cracking open the transmission and putting new bearings in is the long term solution. Have a look at the rear main seal. and of course driveshaft seals at this point.

Pretty much what we decided. New clutch, resurface flywheel, new bearings, new seals, change transmission fluid/oil.

Yes, those bearings are very common to go out. Replaced both the inputshaft bearings (front and rear) clutch, resurface flywheel, and rear main seal while you are in there.

I've done a lot of the d-series manual transmission ISBs and it's common in b-series transmissions also.
