Unless someone beats me to it I'll reply when I get home. Just did this job a month ago.

Okay, so to answer your questions:
1. Yes, the gasket is reusable if
undamaged. But be sure to inspect the ribs for cracks/crushing and clean it with dish soap and water. If you need to replace it, you can get a Fel-Pro TOS18715. It is an identifical gasket to OEM. I got mine from Autozone for $20 as opposed to paying $75 for one at the dealer.
2. Although I like the drain plug, I read some bad reviews of the Dorman pan. Whatever you do, be absolutely sure your pan was not over-torqued when previously serviced. If your pan isn't completely flush it will not seal. Ask me how I know. Look for inverted divots where the bolts go in. Replace the pan if it's mangled. If you want a bung, have a shop weld one in for you.
3. I didn't see the TF316 on there. The other one should work fine. I got the Wix 58611. For what it's worth, I read not to replace the neck seal. I read that some people goof that up.
4. My new pan came with 2 magnets, so I suspect there was a reason for adding another. Just make sure what you put in there is clean.
A few tips... Make sure your mating surfaces (pan, gasket, housing) are clean and free of fluid residue to ensure a good seal on install. I just used isopropyl alcohol to clean the mating surfaces prior to install.
Also, torque spec on the transmission pan bolts call for 89 lb in, however most torque wrenches are not accurate at the top and bottom 30% or their range. That means you could easily over-torque My advice? Get it snug. Any tighter and you could crush the gasket, or worse snap a bolt in the case. I've done this before and it was a nightmare.
Use Dex VI from your dealer. I did a lot of research and I didn't want to go with anything else. My manual says a pan drop will require 7 quarts. Just make sure that when you remove the check plug to check your level, the car needs to be running and the car level. Add a little up top until it drains out of the plug hole. Close it up, shut your car down and you're good to go.
Let me know if you have any questions and I can post the procedure.
