It's way down in the engine compartment to the forward right of the engine (from the driver's POV). It should have a yellow looped handle.

Yes, adding fluid (if it needs it) is crucial to not only smooth gear transistions, but to prevent grinding your transmission down to a useless state. If you look where the transmission dipstick should be and see an empty hole, you've lost it. These things tend to sit loosely, and a shifting problem can be caused from consequently losing all your AT fluid.
