How do you drain the oil and gas out of this mower mtd 22' 4hp and how do you change the spark plug? do you need any special tools/thank you soooo much natalie

Drain plug for the oil should be under the deck next to the blade shaft. Usually a plug with a square head on the bottom of the motor. Loosen the fill plug and then remove the drain plug. Any time you go under there make sure you disconnect the spark plug wire so no spark can jump.
Gas is another thing. No fuel line as carb is part of the tank, so only way to empty is to .....
1) tilt the mower over and pour out the gas. Good time to change the oil and do it before you add the new oil.
2) unbolt the tank from the motor and remove tank carb and all a single unit. Then turn it over and dump the fuel. there are only 2 bolts holding it on so after you remover the air filter you can see them easily. Just remember how the throttle linkage hooks on.

NEWBIE: How difficult is it to change the oil and oil filter?

ok, this should be pretty basic but if you have any doubts buy a repair manual for your car from auto zone or checker or wherever you shop.
first off buy the new filter and the oil, that filter should look very similar to the one that is on your car, although keep in mind that the color and sometimes even shape can be a little different, but you have a basic idea of what to look for.
the oil filter will be on the motor itself, as well as the drain plug, usually both are easier to access from underneath the car.  remove the oil filter counter-clockwise, some oil will leak out at this point and may be hot, so be careful, this may require a tool depending on how tight it is, the tool is usually relatively cheap.  NEVER use an oil filter tool to tighten your filter, it is only for removal and may damage the filter adapter, when you put the new filter on tighten it as much as you can with just your hands, this should be plenty tight. you will also need a drain pan, preferrably sealable so you can take it with you when it is full to be dumped (usually checker/auto zone will have an oil dump). 
next loosen and take out the drain plug, this will be on the bottom of the oil pan, which is the bottom part of the motor itself.  when the oil stops (or reduces to a very fine flow being almost all gone), put the drain plug back in and tighten it down.  add 3 or 4  quarts of oil, start the car and let it run for 15 to 20 seconds, this will fill up the oil filter, then check the oil and add as needed.
hope this helps.

Need specific location of oil drain plug to change oil

I have owned a 1999 intrepid for 9 years. And have changed the oil many times in the 170,000 miles I've owned it. This car comes mostly with a 2.7 liter motor. It does some times have a 3.5 liter. As you open the hood,there is a sticker that tells you what motor it has. If you have the 2.7, between the two front wheels you have a cast aluminum oil "pan" You will see a oil filter sitting vertical, towards the passenger side.The bottom of the filter is almost flush with the bottom of the oil pan. Just to the side of the filter,towards the driver side, is a hex head oil plug. It will take a 11/16" wrench to remove it.Hope this helps lbreen

the motor is "sealed" by the factory... you need a special tool.... it does beg the question. it sounds like you are trying to remove the whole oil pan. why ??

There should be a drain plug that you can unscrew to change the oil.
