Transmission Fluid Change

I am told this has to be done in the shop and cannot be done as a do-it-yourself. First of all is that true? If it is what should I expect it to cost and where can I bring it cheap? How would the car react if the fluid was low or nearly empty?

If you have an auto trans, harsh changes occur and lerching, if manual hard to get in to gear.
