SOURCE: leaking transmission fluid
This problem if left unrepaired can cost you thousands of dollars.
Transmission fluid will typically be red in color,,and will leak from near the center of the underside of the car.
Take it into a repair center as soon as you can

Well first off, coolant in the transmission will cause transmission failure if left in long enough. Proving why the radiator failed will be another story.

Sounds like the modulator or a vacuum line..
The modulator tells the trani when to shift and is controled by vacuum presure..
Check for damaged or disconnected vacuum lines stemming from the trani..
Or maybe the modulator linkage is stuck..
Changing the fluid is a good idea too..

That white fluid is emulsified oil and water. Coolant is getting mixed with the oil and the engine whips it into a sort of milkshake.
The head gasket probably failed along on or more of the cylinders. This would explain both the oil/water and the rough running. Have you noticed a loss of power?
I'd run a compression test to confirm it. But it sounds like you need to replace the head gasket.
Sorry about the bad news,
