If it is an automatic(fill tube is under the hood)Make sure you don't add it in the oil tube though,since they look the same.

If it is a manual,The fill hole is on the side of the transmission.

Please rate this a fixya.

    One other thing,If it is a manual (which I think it is) The noise is the throw out bearing and it will be replaced the next time you have your clutch replaced.

Weird noises in drive and reverse

The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.
