There should be a label under the hood that tells you what the setting is. If you don't have that label, you can call your local Suzuki dealer and they can tell you. If you have to guess, I'd try around 6 to 10 degrees before top dead center. Or you can just do like me and set it by ear. If it starts with little effort and you don't get any pinging or valve rattle under heavy load or going up hills, you've got it pretty close.

Will a transmission from a 1991 Geo Metro fit into a 1998 Geo Metro?

No, a 91 metro transmission will not fit in a 98. A 91 will fit any metro between 1988 - 1996 though. After 1996 a lot of Metro's became 4 Cylinder which made them different from the previous generation metros. It may fit if the engine sizes are correct (1.0 litre 3 cylinder to the same but do not mix and match).
