Also, is it easy to replace the manual tranny fluid? What kind does it recommend?

Here is a link to a very good description of the hill holder
The 1983 owner's manual specifies 80W, 85W and 90 weight API classification GL-5 gear lube depending on temperature. It indicates a capacity of 3.2 US quarts for the 4WD manual transmission. Hopefully someone else here can give you more information.

If you have the adjustable suspension you could tell by looking at your front struts. The adjustable ones will have two bolts on each side of the spring saddle. These bolts compress and decompress the spring allowing you to change the height of the (front) car.
On the rear suspension, if you have it, it will be a bolt facing up in the center of the vehicle on the rear trailing arm crossmember. It will have a rubber plug in the chassis to allow you to adjust it from the top as you can't really see it from the bottom of the car.
Would someone with an EA82 wagon please fess up and answer this...

The 1983 owner's manual has an item called Vehicle Posture Adjustment to adjust the front and the rear ground clearances (suspension ride heights). Apparently the adjustment requires a special wrench. The adjustment is too much to completely describe here. I can photocopy the pages if you want them.
Here's the 'special tool' for the front struts
