gearbox oil

I am going to be changing the oil in the gearbox at the weekend and could do with some advice please

1st question is:- is there a drain plug on the gearbox?

2nd:- i understand from a previous thread i posted that you have to fill the box up through the dipstick tube, is this correct?

3rd;- what gearbox oil is recommended and should i use a gearbox additive like slick 50??

Thanks in advance, Rich.
