SOURCE: got a tioga alloy carrier

This carrier is fitted over the rear mud guard - the long bottom arms are bolted to the rear frame of the bike in the same place as the supports of the mudguard, using the same bolts (if you are removing the guard) or with longer ones (if you put it on top of the guard). The front arms will bolt on the top of the frame - depending on the type of bike you have it will bolt either to the seat shaft with a collar and the long bolt and the spacers or the rear wheel struts directly with 2 collars. On older Tioga carriers models the top fixing is done directly to the seat bolt (the bolt passes thru the holes in the fixing arms) so it all depends on what model of bike and carrier you have.
All the necessary fittings should have come with the carrier if new.

The "rear dropout" points are the part that connects the rear axel to the frame of the Bike. You likely have to remove the back wheel during the process of installing it.

How do you attach a PUSH Hybrid Standard Carrier to a road bike? As there were no instructions provided with the product.

The picture I found...

looks exactly like a Blackburn rack...

which shows the top attachment hardware better.

The rack connects at both bottom points with screws through pre-drilled holes that are present above the rear wheel dropouts on many road and mountain bikes, but FEW racing frames.

The top front end of the rack uses either one or two of the supplied metal braces to mate it somewhere like a seatstay bridged.

See this, first picture...
You may have to get creative with YOUR frame. Don't drill holes in it. Ask a bike shop for options. There are brackets to make up for lack of pre-drilled holes.

I have a mens schwinn midmoor bike that I'm trying to find a rear rack for. Where do I attach the rack at under the seat? Do I need a seat clamp attachment? What size? I'd appreciate any help! :) ...

The most secure and sway-free type would be one that bolts to the bike at at least three points, not simply clamping the seatpost.

Blackburn and Topeak make some nice ones. They mostly bolt to those pre-drilled holes above and behind the rear axle and most say what wheel-size bike they will fit plus they have a range of adjustment (usually via bendable metal braces) for reaching that key third point near the top of the seatstays or brake bridge.
