Engine Oil & Gearbox Oil

Im mid way between services now and im due to do a track day soon so I want to do an oil change. not sure what engine oil to use though, Im tempted to just go to Fiat and get 5 litres of Selina but I can see it being cheap, and for the money I could get something from the more recognised oil makers

as for the gearbox oil..... is it easy to change, I really really think the level in mine is low, it nearly always gives a big clumk or grind into 2nd when its cold, and more recently ive noticed it doing it while its warm too, where is the filler and the drain plug for the gearbox oil?
