You have no doubt eliminated wrong fluid levels as a cause since your are changing out the solenoids. I would suspect low fluid pressure either due to a failing pump or obstruction in a valve body passageway. There is a nice video on working on the pump at
Good Luck.

Whhere do the wires come from to make trnsmission shift

They originate from several locations: Ground, Battery, ECM and others. A shop manual will provide the full schematic, but I located one that addresses the lockup torque converter so that you can eliimanate those wires. 25293057-xt0dpfgehhq42gmjpezjrzaz-5-0.jpg

Transmission does not go into gear.

Hi, check that the cable is attached to the gear selector on the trans and does the shift quadrant move as it usually did.... not sticking or stiff in it's movement. Auto's are basically a hydraulic pump forcing oil in through valves and galleries in the valve body,,,, it could be that a gallery is blocked or that a valve has jammed shut..... check all electrical connectors for a proper fit..... do all the lights on the shift indicator light up as normal, no engine check light coming on ?

No that hard, but your going to have to drop the Transmission pan, there are two identical solenoid at the back of the valve body with the pan removed.
The "B" (2-3) solenoid is the closest to the passenger side,"A" (1-2) is closest the driver side.I would go ahead and replace both as they are not that expensive.Spring clips hold them in place that can be removed with a small screw driver.
The "slipping" you're noticing,is most likely just the transmission shift pattern getting screwed up due to the malfunctioning solenoid.Probably more like a 1-2-2-1 or a 4-3-3-4 pattern depending on which way the solenoid is failing,or maybe it feels like it is starting out in 2nd or 3rd gear. 

Once you get the solenoid changed and transmission fluid and filer changed, here is a little added performance you can do. Have the Servos replaced with the Corvette servos, the part is only $45.00 and take about 30 min to replace but less for you since you have the truck up on a lift already. 
Good Luck and here is a link for the 4L60E improvement.,com_tech_article/Itemid,/item,6/task,item/

97 gmc pickup with automatic transmission trouble

1st thing to do is test the system for codes, the problem is most likely a failed or stuck shift solenoid indside the trans, have you ever serviced the trans, sometimes a fluid and filter cahnge will cure these kinds of issues.
