--- ATF QUANTITY & TOOLS--
Just more info for you. You do not want to overfill the ATF. I have the same 98 Camry 2.2L 4 cyl, it specifies for a drain & fill, it uses 2.5 qt. ATF.
The drain plug is a 10mm hex key, so you need the 10mm hex "male" to stick it in and loosen with a ratchet. Tighten with 30 ft. lb. when you are done draining.
The 4 cyl uses a filter too, you don't have to change it every time you change your ATF. Probably good to do it every 2 yr or 30K mi. You can buy the Pro-King ATF filter for this car for $11; make sure you get the one for "the 15-bolt version" transmission, as you'll need to loosen 15 bolts before you get to see the filter.
--- FLUID CHOICE ---
For cheapest way, you can buy the SuperTech Dex III from Wal-Mart for $10/gal. Or Step up some and buy the good one fro mValvoline MaxLfe Dex/Mer ATF for $18/gal.
In owner's manual it calls for Dex II or compatible Dex III. Realistically Dex II is discontinued for years, Toyota really uses the "Mobil 3309" ATF, which you can still buy some from Wal-Mart or auto part store if you care to use the OEM fluid.

The shop I work for would charge about 350.00plus fluid and filter.I would try to stay away from the chain stores the tend to be pirates.Find a shop that has been in business a long time that maybe the local sheriff or police use.Good luck!

Do you have your owners' manual? Check the diagram there to see where the dipstick for the tranny fluid is. You generally have to check the fluid when the engine is hot. You can sometimes get help withe these things at the big box auto stores like Advance Auto. I hope this helps! Ask them to show you how to add the fluid. You could also go to the oil change place and get them to show you that any other crucial check points on your auto.
