Question Rattle/Buzz and rough ride in low gears on cold start

I bought my 2004 accord v6 6mt a couple months ago. Since then, I noticed a rattle/buzzing sound coming from just to the right of the dashboard. I went through a Haynes manual and found it could be the mt fluid, and it was due for a change anyways, so I refilled that... still rattled. After some digging, I found the catalytic converter shields tend to rattle, so I removed the floor shield, which was beat to pieces. I thought this fixed the rattle for good, but lo and behold.. it's still rattling. The sound happens when I first start driving the car after a while, in 1st from 1200rpm-3000rpm, then 2nd from 2100rpm-3000rpm, then fades away in 3rd. ALSO, once the car has been running for a bit, the rattling does NOT come back, even in 1st and 2nd. As an additional note, when in the low gears, the car tends to lurch and bump around, so I have to baby the throttle by being very light on it. Not sure if this is related to the rattling, but it's also a problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.
