Your transmission is probably getting ready to take a dump on you and you will have to get a new transmission sooner then you want if you hot rod it. I'v done it so try and take it easy and make it last. I had a similar issue with a 99 Grand AM. It turned out to be a deteriorated vacuum hose to the air flow sensor on the front of the engine. It cleared the problem of the hard shift as well as an occasional stall at low speeds.

Would vacuum leak cause automatic transmission to slip on 98 Pontiac Grandam?

I don't think so. The automatic transmission is controlled by engine speed, vehicle speed and throttle position. A large vacuum leak could effect throttle position, but it would cause other problems more noticable than the effect on transmission shifting. a vacuum leak mpuld not cause trasmission to slip but a band inside transmission would cause the problem
