Ok - attach a hose (3/4 or 7/8" fits most of them) to the top of the fluid bottle and shove the other end into the top of the dip stick tube and pour accordingly.

Next start the car and drive it to your nearest metal recycler and place it on the weigh bridge. Expect around $80 a ton :)

You should drive it to the recycle yard first (there may be some useful spare parts there to throw in the boot) and then back home to get the trans upto operating spec, then refill accordingly, refilling a trans to the full mark when cold will generally overfill it.
