I maually set up the "5" now entered iTunes & asked do I want to do new set up or restore
I have an Iphone 5 that I set up for my wife. Being semi-computer-illiterate I manually set up the "5". I did not use the iTunes set up. Now I have various apps installed and all the old CONTACTS. Today when I tried to use iTunes with the iPhone 5 it asked me if I wanted to do a NEW set up or do a RESTORE from the old iPhone 3. I do not want to lose any data, contacts, apps that I currently have on the iPhone 5. WHAT DO I DO?

Selecting restore as new under the circumstances you mentioned will do nothing to the phone itself. iTunes will simply treat it as a new device. At least that has been 'my' experience. If you have an iCloud account and have iCloud enabled, do an iCloud backup first, just in case.

I wouldn't restore the old backup. Set it up as you did and you can back up what you have. Then you can restore today's backup later on if needed.
