For a 2002 Ls, checking the trany fluid must be done on a lift, theres a level checking and also adding plug on the bottom of the trany, even to add fluid you will need a pump to pump fluid into bottom of the trany pan, theres no dip stick on these cars, and car must be level. you can try doing this on the ground , you will see the plug on the trany pan, you remove the allen screw, size 3/16 allen key, and fluid should drain out, you should see a stream and that means its full, heres a few diagrams of the trany check plug, good day,
The pilot bearing is pressed into the flywheel and you need a pilot bearing/bushing puller. Some A/P stores will rent it to you for free (deposit). the throwout bearing is held onto the clutch fork normally by clips. Sometimes you have to take the "fork" out to get the bearing off.
Make sure to note how "deep' the pilot bearing/bushing is so that when you install the new one it is set at the right depth.

This is a easy job and will take about an hour once you have all the parts. First of all look in your owners manuel to see what grade lube you need and how many quarts. Go to your local auto parts store and purchase the lube and a gasket for the Tacoma. Put the vehicle in park and remove the bolts on the back pan. Place a pan under the rear end and remove the bottom of the pan with a screwdriver carefully. The fluid will come out slowly. Once it has been completely drained remove the cover completly. Scrap all the old gasket material and replace the new one. Put the cover on and torch per specifications. Fill it up and your done.

ok, here's the deal. there are 2 types of transmissions one with an external oil filter( kinda looks like the oil filter for the engine) and then there is the other type of transmission that was produced later on the 4 cylinder engines that doesnt have a removable filter. it does have a screen that is not servicable, it can only be replaced during the rebuild of the transmission. this design is supposed to be "back flushed" to remove all debris. Most good transmission shops have this type of system that pressureizes the system and does this.
If your gonna do this on your own, what you will need to do is buy 4-5 quarts of transmission fluid, drain the oil from the pan on the front of the engine, reinstall it, add the fluid, drive for 30 min, and then repeat the process.
