I'm not familiar with the cover you're talking about. If it's made of metal, you may can get it out with a magnetic tool retriever. If it is not magnetic, you'll have to remove the tank.
The tank is not difficult to remove. I think the tank has three bolts and you'll probably have to remove the battery tray on the other side. Disconnect the hoses and remove the tank.

Yes, although I don't work on the later model bikes, I do believe you can do this because you have to take the derby cover off to adjust the clutch and you don't have to drain the oil to do that.

If the tank cap is loose, you need to get a new seal or simply replace the entire cap. There are two marks on the dipstick. The upper mark is "FULL HOT" and the lower mark is "FULL COLD". Do not add oil to the tank when the oil is cold. As long as there is oil on the stick, ride the bike until it comes to operating temp and then add any oil if it needs any. This is a common mistake on the Sportsters. If you bring the oil up to the top mark when cold, it'll expand and blow the tank cap out and make a big mess. Do not overfill the tank but if the tank cap is loose, replace it.
