In brief: Long list. need exam

Many conditions can cause frequent stools.
Other conditions can cause local irritation at the anus that then makes it difficult and painful to pass stool. You will need an evaluation, preferably by a gastroenterologist or a colon and rectal surgeon, to have a definitive answer.

There are many reasons for having difficulty evacuating stool as well as many sources of pain such as anal fissure. i would recommend a consultation with a colorectal surgeon so that a proper examination may be performed and the diagnosis can be made
