Passat: oil filter..filter housing..which bolt is the drain plug

Resolved Question:

I have the items to change the oil in my passat. Where is the location of the oil filter housing? Also, which bolt is the drain plug for the oil? I understand that it is easy to confuse it with the transmission drain plug. Last part of this question. Does the tranny fluid have a filter and need fluid change ever?
