The only way to check trans oil on manual is to check it through the drain plug. But if you get a service manual at like an auto parts store, it will give you all the specs for the type of oil and capacity.

Usually there's two plugs, a drain plug on the bottom and an inspection plug on the side.

After warming the car and letting it sit for a while, you take out the inspection plug and check the level with your finger.

Most people only have the gearbox oil replaced with the clutch.
