How to find the low pressure a/c gauge on my 04 grand am gt?

There is no low a/c gauge on cars (most cars, anyway). It sounds like your a/c is blowing warm and someone suggested that you check the low pressure for freon.
The a/c has a low pressure side and high pressure side. The pressures can be checked by attaching a set of gages to the two ports of your a/c system. The low side needs to be at about 34psi to get cold air. A cheap set of gages can be found for about $40. Or you can buy a freon kit with low pressure gage at the auto parts store, such as Auotzone, Pep Boys, O'Reilley's, etc.
It sounds like you're not really familiar with a/c systems, and messing with them can be dangerous. You really need to work with someone who knows, or take it to a shop.

Cant find low side of the air conditioner line to recharge a 96 v6 grand am

Look at the back side of the A/C compressor on the lines. If for some odd reason it is not there due to replacement (or something?!) follow the low side line from the firewall back to the compressor being sure to cover the accumulator as well.

Where do I recharge the air conditoner in my 1994 dodge Grand Caravan

Should be installed as a liquid (simply meaning inverting the cylinder) in the low side service port(if and when the compressor is running).This is always the larger hose/accumulator on passenger side heading into the interior compartment/firewall. High side pipes are smaller tubing heading towards the front condenser/reciver dryer and run superheated rerigerant so they get hot...low side always feels cold.....

Where is the air conditoner low pressure service port

No offense, but if you can't find the low side port, then you have no business trying to charge or otherwise fix an A/C system.
It's dangerous.  Hook up to the wrong port and the freon can goes off like a grenade in your hand, freezing whatever it fails to blow away.

The low pressure port is on the compressor on the bottom side. It should have a black cap on it.

The low side port is on a quart sized container just in front of the passenger side front tire. It is easier to access if you remove the front tire and the inner skirt.
