2. Is there a socket available that will fit the small area to undo the filler plug on the transmission? (So, I have only read about the L-shape tool but those do not let you torque it to specification and I can't find any 8mm socket that is in total length of 30-35mm as that is all the space there is near the transmission).
Torx, forgot which one; since I got a set of torx bits I didn't pay attention which one, I just try them on and see which one fits mine.

For hex drive, I bought cheap 8mm hex drive from Napa and grind the head about ye height (see picture) for drain and filler plugs on tranny pan:
