If you're not mecahnically minded, this isnt a job for you.
There is no filler cap for gearbox oil. The gearbox will have a level check plug, and a separte drain plug. Both will probably require a specific plug tool to remove (i.e. not just an ordinary spanner or socket), and can only be accessed from underneath the car.
Gearbox oil level has to be checked with the car level, so a garage will put the car on a lift so they can work underneath it. So, even if you jacked it up (never work under a car only supported by a jack ! Use ramps or axle stands as well) and could get at and undo the plugs, the car wont be level and therefore you wont put the correct amount of oil in.
Suggest you take it to a garage.
