The tubes, or core of the cooler cannot be repaired. They are very thin walled. Another point to consider is that your bike is oil cooled (Suzuki Advanced Cooling System) its very important that all this works properly because a catastrophic failure of the cooler will destroy your engine and possibly kill you when the oil reaches the back wheel. You will need to replace it with an identical unit. Should not be hard to find one at a breakers or ebay.

I have transmisson oil in my radiator

If your bike is water cooled there is a broken oil cooler in your rad. Some bikes are oil cooled and the rad is actually for a 'oil cooler'.
If it mixes with the water it usually turns into a milky brown substance. New rad is needed (or cooler repaired)

Iwould like to get a diagram of how the oil lines on my 1993 fatboy should be run to accodimate my New 107" S&S motor to my existing oil cooler. We ssem to be getting air in the line w/ the cooler...

Since the oil cooler on your Fatboy is an "add-on", there is not a diagram for how it should plumbed in. They did not come from the factory with an oil cooler on them. But, this is how it should be plumbed in. After the oil comes out of the oil filter, it goes back to the oil tank. In your case, run the oil out of the filter, then through the cooler, and then to the tank. It may take a while to get all the air out of the cooler. The only way you can do this is hold the cooler so that the cooling tubes are vertical while spinning the engine over with the starter. Take the spark plugs out and don't spin the engine for over 15 seconds at a time. Then. allow the starter to cool before doing it again. It's kind of like bleeding the air out of fuel line.

Good Luck

I have tiny oil leak (it is oil because the level has dropped over the course of 2 months) under the bike near the stand, bike was in storage for about 8 months. Can I fix this problem, I am familiar with...

You need to locate the leak on the engine, first. It's probably just a bum seal in one of the oil cooler lines, if your bike is equipped with those.

In any event, most oil leaks will be simple to fix, unless you have to replace engine gaskets. Those aren't so easy, but I bet you could still do it.
