How to change oil in standard trasnmission in Ford Ranger 1997

remove the fill plug before you do anything. If you can not remove the fill plug there is no reason to remove the drain plug since you will not be able to fill the transmission once the fluid is drained out.

Once the fill plug is out, remove the drain plug. Let oil drain into a drain pain. Reinstall the drain plug. Fill the transmission with the appropriate fluid until the fluid starts to drain from the fill hole. Reinstall the fill plug. Your good to go.

Losing oil and water but its not mixing and shows no oil pressure

No oil,pressure is very bad.
are you sure it's not water in the oil making it so thin it can't build oil pressure?
How does car run? Not that you want to run it without oil pressure, I should ask, how was it running last time?
I would drain about a quart from oil drain plug and check it. If there's water it will come out of drain plug first. If it's good, you have "3" problems: where is oil going? where is water going? why no oil pressure?
A compression test on your engine's' cylinders will confirm if it has a head gasket problem. That's very possible if you can't find external leaks.
