If it is auto there is a tube in the engine bay with a dipstick in it for checking the fluid level, remove the dipstick, put a funnel in the tube and top the trans up.
Check the fluid level with the engine running and move the selector lever through all the gear positions to make sure the fluid has filled all the tubes etc

Gear stick getting tight while driving short distances. Gears first to fourth has to be forced in, because the gear stick feels tight. Only happens on short run while using gears more often.

I assume this is a standard transmission. You didn't mention how old the car is, but if it has had the transmission fluid replaced, they may have put in too heavy a fluid, which is not allowing the synchronizers to function properly until the fluid is warmed. Check that the gearbox is properly serviced and that it has the correct viscosity fluid.
When I had my manual gearbox fluid replaced three years ago, they put in the standard 75W90 gear oil, but the manufacturer specifications call for a much lighter fluid. My shifting was very tight, especially in cold weather, so I drained it and added the recommended lubricant. MUCH better!

Where do I put my transmission fluid in an automatic transmission/Automatic...

Most, if not all vehicles require the fluid in an automatic transmission, or automatic gearbox, to be added through the dipstick tube (the tube where the fluid level is checked from).
It more often than not requires the use of a small funnel. Most service station attendants are trained in this procedure.
Always use the fluid type recommended by the manufacturer, and fill to the proper level. Since the fluid is added through the dipstick tube it may take some time to get an accurate reading, due to the residue left by the new fluid.
Transmissions and Gearboxes give a more accurate reading after the vehicle is warm, or has been running/driven for at least fifteen minutes.

If this has been of any assistance, kindly rate it accordingly. Thank you.

How do i refill gearbox oil

We need more information. Type of Vehicle, year, is this manual transmission....etc. That being said, most "gearbox" have two 'bolt type plugs' on them. One to drain fluid out and one to put fluid in. Really need to know more about what you have.
