Filings caused by miss alignment of shaft/ bearings. Probably be ok wiuth oil changew and filter. Go for it. If it fails buy another trans from a wrecker out of a smash for a lot cheaper. Vectra is euro import. Best fix would be trade in while running ok.

Do you have a manual or automatic transmission in the vehicle?
I assume it is automatic and in that case all you can do yourself is check the level of the automatic transmission fluid if you have the engine bay auto transmission dip stick and filler tube in that model.
I doubt low transmission fluid is the problem though but check it anyway and do it when the fluid is warm/hot.
As it is, you need to get the car to Holden service or to a competent auto transmission specialist to run some tests on the transmission. If it is a 1999 model you no doubt have a high kms vehicle and the auto transmissions on these cars will often not last the life of the car and need to be replaced at some time after 140000 kms or so.
If it is an automatic transmission it will have an oil cooler in one of the radiator tanks. The fix is a new radiator unless you can find a radiator shop that is prepared to remove the tank and fit a new cooler core.
Timing belts usually have an automatic (spring Loaded) adjuster. Usual replacement is done at 100,000 k or 60,000 miles. If you do not replace it you run the risk of it breaking which could do damage to the engine. refer to your owners manual.
Not until you have done all the necessary checks. Check that the oil is bright cherry red and not tan. Have a pressure test done on the transmission to check for internal faults. Have the fault codes read to check for transmission faults (TCM ) check oil level. Remove the pan and clean out the filter./ If there is band and clutch pack linings in the filter then you may have to have the box overhauled.. If not adjust the bands and clutch packs . After all the checks are done then and only then should you consider a replacement transmission and only from accredited transmission shops
