Provided you use the correct grade of oil as stipulated by Toyota for your engine(you have NOT identified your model and engine)(check your owners manual) and provided you use the formulation suitable for Toyota engines you will be fine using the correct grade fully synthetic oil. There are sometimes 2 or 3 different formulations in exactly the same grade for some oil brands so make sure you select the correct one.
Some oil companies offer oil selector programs for customer use on their web sites so if unsure use these systems to ensure you are using the correct oil..
A gearbox will not "knock" in the usual sense, that is said of an engine running on petrol which is a lower octane than it needs. The sound is more of a light rattle or pinging.
If your manual gearbox has had the wrong oil in it for only a week or 2 and has not been thrashed, it is unlikely it has been damaged at all. Just drain and refill with the right grade.
If an auto gearbox, using the wrong oil can cause damage, as it may be far too thick. Drain and refill 2-3 times with the correct grade, running the engine until warm, but not driving around, in between. Then go for a drive without thrashing the car, and see if you can notice anything abnormal.
If you can, take it to an auto trans shop for advice. Then
No different from any other oil change, just reset the oil life on the dash if it has one which i believe it does. The oil grade is 5W-30 on the turbo engines and 10W-30 on the non turbo engines. If you like you can go with the synthetic oil which will give you up to 25,000 miles or 1 year before service, but you do have to replace the oil filter every 5,000 to 7,000 mile and top off the synthetic oil which in the long run be cheaper then changing the oil andfilter every 5,000 miles or six months for turbo and 3,000 to 4 months for non turbo engines. Good luck and hope this helps.

I am confused - I have a simple query and logged on to your site as you offered free advice! Do you not offer the service as described on your website. I definitely don't need a team of experts to answer my very simple question.
Hi! Firstly let's say are you sure Hydraulic Oil?
Surely you mean Auto Trans Fluid?
A normal Auto Gearbox uses DextronII
Your local Parts supplier/garage will be able to give you the correct amount, grade and specification as He/She will have the catalogue listing your Toyota Camry.
I hope this Helps You!
Engine-mount if your lucky but with turbo its usually a ripped "syncromesh", my kp 5speed is adjustable in the 5th
