While the tech may have been honest and trying to help, it could be he was hoping to drum up some (expensive) business. The trans pan leak is the easy one as the pan has to be removed to replace the filter, so replace filter, fluid and pan gasket and this should be fixed. The brake wheel cylinder leak is a different issue altogether and if it really is leaking you should have this fixed asap. which may require rebuilding both rear brakes. Oil leaks from engine can be very small or large, as can power steering leaks. Suggest you may want to have a second opinion unless you have dealt with this tech before and have complete trust in him.
YES ,YOU WILL HAVE TO UNBOLT THE MOTOR MOUNTS AND RAISE THE ENGINE REMOVE THE OIL PUMP/ 2 BOLTS AND PICKUP TUBE, YOU WILL ALSO HAVE TO REPLACE THE PAN GASKET
IT'S NOT TO BAD OF A JOB BUT GETTING THE PAN TO CLEAR THE CRANK JOURNALS MAY BA A PROBLEM, AS YOU RAISE THE ENGINE YOU WILL HAVE TO WATCH THINGS LIKE THE FAN AND THE RADIATOR, THE REAR OF THE ENGINE SO THINGS DON'T NGET BROKE. BE CAREFUL AND GOD LUCK
The cost of this will vary from place to place, but if your doing it yourself then thats going to save you a bit of cost. From what I've seen an average cost of a second hand oil sump(Pan) was $ 130 - $ 200 USD. This should only take and 1 - 1.5 hours to do. The cost to have a workshop replace it will depend on hourly rate of the workshop. There are also other cost of replacing the oil and a gasket for the oil pan. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

do you have a 3.1L V6? The timing cover gasket seals the timing components, it is located behind the belt drive system (alt, a/c, p/s etc.) all of these components must be removed to change this gasket, also the oil pan lower seal gets changed at the same time. The oil pan gasket includes the rear pan seal and the side seals and on for the rear of the pan, the engine must be lifted out of it mounts to change this gasket. It takes time to do these repairs and each shop has an hourly rate per hour on labor. The cost of the parts will be relatively the same at any shop, labor will differ. I hope this helps to answer your questions.
i believe what you mean is a P1860 code? There is no P1806. The code is for a torque converter clutch pulse width solenoid, which is an internal electrical part of the transmission, it is a pretty labor intensive job, and you could actually end up needing a full transmission. that and the oil pan gasket could lead to a heafty bill, if its worth it to fix is up to your and your financial situation really, ask yourself if you can buy a different car with the money that you are quoted for the work.
