SOURCE: TRANSMISSION OIL LEAK
usually not to expensive and yes it is difficult if you just bought the car and never worked on it , i always go to a mechanics the first time. just check the fluid often dont run it low, until you get it fixed. its just a matter of removing the bolts that hold the plate on and then changing/flushing the trans fluid, filter. if you never done it i wouldnt attempt it alone .

generally broken seals.
I am not sure where the leak is coming from in your post.
it may be simply coming from the pan. If this is the case go to your parts store ask for a pan gasket and a new filtre ( always a good idea to replace) then remove screws from the pan be careful as it will be full of fluid. I try to loosen screws and lower one side of pan to allow it to drain into a pan or some type of container. most vehicles have a drain screw remove this first it should be in the centre of the pan. the pan looks like a cake pan inverted.
If it is actually leaking from the hub of the tranny itself.... I hate to say but your best option may be to go to a tranny shop and ask for an expert opinion on it. as you may have internal issues with your tranny and fixing it sooner is better than waiting and looking at a double cost.
Hope this helped.

its a one piece. should be the metal one with the rubber inside seal. of corse you gatta pull the tranny but its a good time to change fluids and maybe slap a new torque converter in. changing the rear main is pretty easy after the tranny is out.

I think this is for an oil level sensor. Should be easy to change , or a shop can do it for a nominal charge. The dealerships will want more.
