Yes, it will be linked to the driveshafts .. the same oil lubricates the gearbox and differential where the shafts drive off.

The oil level indicator is simple ... take out the filler plug and check by inserting your small finger(!) and judge how much oil is there. Or, simply top up slowly and any excess will start to run out. Gearbox oil is pretty smelly stuff so make sure you have plenty of paper, paper-towels, rags underneath to catch any excess. You need to have the car on flat, level ground too.

V6 boxes are more advanced and come with a dipstick!!

AFAIK face the car from the front, it's to the right & down between the bulkhead & the 'box (fill through dipstick hole)
