That bolt on the pan is a drain plug. It might have a riser tube threaded up into the hole. That's how the 4AT is on my 2015 versa sedan. If this is the case, only a little bit of ATF will run out when you remove the plug/bolt. The riser uses an Allen key to thread it out. If I remember correctly, a 5mm? Either way. Simple. Yes, use the charge tube in the engine bay to refill the trans. I use Valvoline maxlife ATF in my 2015.
