For most engines there is no need to change the crankshaft to use an engine for an automatic or a manual transmission. For an automatic, connect a flex-plate to the crankshaft. For a manual transmission connect a flywheel.

Yes, on the crankshaft there should be a "slot" called a keyway, and a matching slot on the flywheel, mate a key in the slot of the flywheel and crankshaft, and then your flywheel should be timed, also on a magneto ignition system, makesure the magneto has the proper gap, called "armature air gap" usualy if you put a buossness card in there is a good starting point

Use of flywheel generally?

The flywheel from an engine standpoint is used to balance the Crankshaft and keep it moving through centrifugal force. From a transmission standpoint, it used as a mounting point for the clutch (manual transmissions) or the torque converter (automatic transmissions) and aids in the transfer of power from the engine to the transmission and down the rest of the drivetrain.

Would someone please explain where the tranny cover is that allows me to jam the crankshaft sproket in order to keep it from rotating?

Underneath the car,located on or near the bottom of the engine nearest the transmission.Should be 2 bolts to remove the inspection cover or you may need to remove the starter and access the flywheel on a manual transmission vehicla or a flexplate on a automatic transmission vehicle.So you either have a flywheel or flexplate,not a crankshaft sprocket.Good luck.
