Quick question ..Where is the dipstick ..

I know where the red dipstick is ..but where is another one , is there other one at all ?
My tranny has been slipping lately, so I need to add that "Anti Slip" liquid it goes the same place where oil goes right ?
But where is that place ?

Oh and do I have to put the liquid in when the car is running or not ?
Should I just put in the whole bottle ?
Anyone knows ?
Thanks.

Is there any way I can just add a fluid to the "oil only" cap ?
Does the car has to be running when I do that ?
Or where do I add transmission fluid ?
