grade 80W is the specified grade for M/T but with the newer oils on the market, 75W-90 should be equally good.
you will find a fill plug and a drain plug on the tranny. Once drained, all u need to do is fill tranny gear oil into the fill plug, and fill until it begins to spill(about 1.3-1.5ltrs) install plug. and you are done.
your idea about throw out bearing is correct. throw out bearing noise with clutch out is not likely because the clutch release bearing is not"in use" with clutch out ruling out the vibrating or rotational noise u complain of... unless, the clutch bearing has lost it's return spring and rubs on the clutch fingers while stationary(such is a rare case)
