Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

My 2005 chevy monte calro has been overheating it has hot coolant on dash but fluids are cold, goes off when applied gas hard to get fluids pumping, heater doesn't work and recently replaced radiator and...

Check the thermostat, if it isn't opening when engine warms up, the coolant in the engine will overheat and make pressure in the cooling system but the fluid in the radiator will still be cold.

Thats the 64 million dollar question. With proper transmission maintenance and not using the car for towing you should be able to get any where from 150K to 300,000 miles. But this is only with proper maintenance and no severe driving. The biggest cause of transmission failures is friction. The lack of clean fluid and filter to carry away the worn clutch disc parts that you wear out over time. When these pieces of debris are not removed or cause the filter to clog this causes excessive wear on the transmission. Like the engine, regular oil and filter changes will pay their way in the long run.

Transmission jump ( kind of like a THUD sound???)

sounds like your transmission filter and fluid need changed if this is an automatic, if its a standard then your clutch may be starting to slip

Transmission Fluid Change?

Every 50,000 miles is listed for routine maintenance for your car. Also, periodically check the fluid and watch for the color. If the color starts to turn from light purple to brown, change the fluid and filter immediately, regardless of how many miles its been between changes. Hope this answers your question. Best of luck.
