The gears are located in the manual transmission. This assembly of gears and pinions is most of the time located just behind the engine. This arrangement places two heavy objects (the engine and transmission) in one area concentrating weight in a single spot. This is not good for weight distribution, which would be best if more evenly distributed throughout the car. Therefore someone came up with a transaxle. Which puts the transmission at the rear axle. This is found on more exotic cars. Cars with front wheel drive have the transmission next to the engine, which is located in the front of the car.

If a car was parked and another car pushed it a couple of yards could this cause same damage to the drivetrain?

Depend on whether it is automatic or manual and if you had the car in gear. If automatic, your parking pin in the transmission may have broken. If manual, yes something in the clutch or gears may be damaged. IMO, if your park is still working, then no damage has been done. Pushing the car 6ft would not damage either the gears or clutch on a manual, and the only damage that could be done to an A/T would be to break the Park Pall.
