it should be underneath your car in between the firewall and the engine. Now you don't want to supply direct power to your starter because you'll end up frying it. However to just start the car once you've located the starter, get a long screwdriver with a plastic handle and connect the two wires with the screwdriver.
As for a long term fix, without investing the money to replace the necessary parts. You will need to attach a wire that can handle 12v to both wires on your starter separately. Then connect the other ends of both wires to a switch that can handle 12v, and mount that in your car somewhere. Then whenever you need to start your car just flip the switch on until the car starts then once it is started flip it back off.
I know this sounds like a lot but it is very doable with about $5 and a little bit of time.

A word of advise from someone who has worked for a Nissan dealer and has been trained on their products. In your particular case, the VG30DE is an expensive motor to make a mistake on.
There are no real short cuts which I would advise you to take. It is far too easy to have an over site because of a skipped procedure.
Skipping a procedure on this engine can have devastating results.
It is far better to take your time, look up the actual recommended procedure, whether in a Nissan manual, All Data, Mitchell manuals or other reliable source. They will provide you with the correct procedure in which to R&R the water pump.DON'T guess at it! A seasoned tech will more often than not, consult these reference for the proceedures because they, 9 times out of 10 will save them time and grief! Back when the Nissans were Datsun 240,60and 80 Z's, I could tell you of short cuts on many proceedures which would beat the hell out of the flat rate book times. Doing a 78 280Z clutch never took me more than an hour!
I could pull an engine on one, tear it down and give you a list of wht it needed in parts in less than two hours! Those days are GONE!
What we have to work on today are more sophistocated and far more crammed together and stuffed in tight places to save weight and production costs. On many cars you could drop a whole tube of BB's in an engine compartment and not one would hit the floor!
To sum it up "david bluelog" your best savings is to do the job right and follow the proceedures to the letter.
I hope I was helpful even though you might not like my answer.
