The "insert" is actually part of the chain tensioner that sticks through the cover. An o-ring on the tensioner is supposed to keep oil from leaking in that spot. Are you sure it's not oil from when the oil line was removed?

Yes, you are missing the boot that covers the shift rod. Check under the access cover on the "hump" in front of the rear seats - maybe it is still in there. I can't see the leak you are talking about but the shifter seal is replacable with the transmission in the car I've heard. I'd rather do it with the transmission out and the end cover removed.
