When you put incorrect fluid into a transmission it is absorbed by the clutch material (yes there are multiple clutches inside)...therefore it may not be possible to restore proper operation without replacing all internal friction material.
One thing though: When you drop the pan to remove the oil, you are only changing about half of it.(the remainder is inside the torque converter) If you change it multiple times,permitting it to idle, then changing shift positions, you can reduce the concentration of incorrect fluid by doing so. You don't need to replace the filter or the gasket while doing this, and don't even need to pay attention to any minor pan leaks. It will require a lot of oil though. If near-normal operation does not return after three changes I'd give up. If it does get better, do it one more time and add some lucas additive in the final change, then service again in about 4,000 miles. The length of time driven and miles you drove before finding your mistake are important. If either are more than one day or a few miles, don't bother, and just have the unit rebuilt. One thing for sure is that you will never make that mistake again!!!
Good luck!

Auto boxes are best left to professionals but there are some things you can do 1) check that the selector rod from beneath the gear shift to the gear selector on the side of the gear box is correctly adjusted, 2) make sure that the transmission oil is at the right level, new oil can be added via the dip stick tube. If you are adventurous and are able to remove the gearbox pan you might be to see evidence of the gear box damage, metal shavings etc. If you can remove the gearbox you may be able to replace a sheared splined input shaft (indicated by a an engine that is running but that will simply not engage gear). Anything repairs beyond this should be left to an expert or simply replace the gearbox

What could be an immediate problems of an automatic gear box that ran out of gearbox oil, can it make the gear box not to select, if yes, can the gearbox be refix or is it a better advice to buy a new...

IF a transmission (not gear box) gets low on transmission fluid - that can certainly cause bad damage..
A automatic transmission rund by hydrolic bands - not gears..

A re-built trani is pretty much as good as a new one - and certainly less expensive than a new one..

Most all auto trani's are re-built rather than being replaced with a new one..
