Follow your top rad hose back to engine. Should be a housing with usually 2 bolts attaching it to engine, thermostat should be behind it.
You didn't say what engine, but this is usually a pretty good bet.

My 1987 jeep cherokee is having trouble shifting into 1st gear, and when it does shift it shifts very rough.... i've been told it is a hose leak, but my question is, how do i locate that hose and find out...

THere should only be one vacuum hose going to your transmission, and it plugs on to the modulater valve. If you think it's leaking, replace the whole hose. It could be any vacuum hose leaking oin the engine. About all you can do is , with the engine running, wiggle all your hoses and listen for a hissing sound. Check for cracked, damaged or loose hoses.
