For vibration check your transmission support then for slipping try to adjust your clutch higher than before...

Well, you did a really good job of describing the symptoms, but you didn't do so well describing the car. Are we talking about an automatic or standard transmission? are we talking about a four or six cylinder engine? You are asking about a drivetrain problem without giving any information about what drivetrain the vehicle is equipped with.

With all that said, IF we are talking about an automatic transmission being pushed by a V-6 engine, then there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that matches the symptoms you are describing. In this case, the problem is most likely being caused by a deformed or damaged exhaust pipe "A" mounting bracket.

Inspect the rubber bracket for cracks or torn rubber. If the bracket is damaged replace the bracket. Bend the stud on the exhaust pipe if necessary to get the stud to go through the bracket as straight as possible so the stud does not "ground" against the sides of the bracket. (see diagram)

Vibration through the car Transmission-motor Linkage?

Check to make sure both headlights are tight,,,when it rattles at idle go feel the headlight and hold it and see if the noise and vibration goes away,sometimes the headlight has too much clearance and causes a massive vibration,,if thats not it try...loosening all the motor mounts and rock the car back and forth and them retighten them,it reseetles the mounts and sometimes fixes the issue,,also check the lower engine and trans mounts for wear.

Uncertain if it's really a transmission problem

Being as it's over 200,000 miles, I'd definitely check into these things before assuming it's a transmission. As it very well could be a transmission problem such as, bad torque converter or a problem in the gears. It also could be as simple as a poorly balanced tire, or a wheel bearing going out. Check these before assuming it's a transmission as it could turn what you might think of over $1000 problem into a $30 fix.

As you Said, Air filter, or fuel filter.
New tank of name brand fuel... BP, Shell, Citgo, etc...
Tire Balancing
Wheel Bearings
Even check the brakes, a bad rotor or dragging pad may cause a vibration.

Now in the case that it's something else, here's a couple ways to check the transmission yourself to see if it's causing a problem.

1 : Find a steep hill and stop on it. Accelerate throughout first gear, see if it vibrates there at all. Make sure to put it into first gear so it won't shift out. If there's no vibration, try it in second, third, so forth.

2 : Many actual transmission problems are more notable in reverse as the gearing is actually turned backwards and made more evident. So try it in reverse, see if anything abnormal is experienced.

3 : Find a parking lot and make sure you have some space. Turn the wheel all the way to one side, left or right. Lay into the throttle and listen carefully. A clicking sound will denote a bad pivot joint in an axle or a bad wheel bearing. Try this in both directions as well. As a lot of times only one side will make noise and only if you're turning in that direction.

4 : Another good way to check for transmission problems is by engine braking. Use first or second gear to keep the vehicle slow while traveling downhill. Not at high speed, but enough where you can feel the vehicle being held back. Any slipping or vibration can denote a problem with the transmission.

Try these steps and see if you can narrow the problem down. Once you get it narrowed down; it's time to search for the right remedy whether it be a $20 air filter or a $700 transmission rebuild. I hope this helps you out bud!
