The oil pan was broken. They are made out of aluminum or cast iron. but i think it's hard aluminum. You are going to have it replace it. Don't drive the car without oil.Anyone can do it . Lift the car and secure it so it won't fall. Then remove that plastic thing you mentioned and remove the bolts around the pan . It has several . Be sure to buy a pan and gasket along with the pan.And replace.

Engine won't go over 5-10 MPH

You need to take the car to the dealer, because you need to recalibrate the electric throttle body with a TECH 2 Scanner, because the system went into a Limp mode.

Where is the oil filter located on a 2010 Ford Fusion SE V6?

The Oil Filter is located in the Front of the engine on a 3.0L.It is between the motor and the radiator. You will need a 7mm socket to remove the plastic cover that says oil filter on it (at least the 2011 has that). You need a 15mm wrench for the oil plug.
I rolled the Fusion up on ramps and removed the oil filter and the oil dripped all down the front of motor and all on the plastic under the motor. Next time I might jack up the back to level the car out more to make less a mess from the oil dripping.
