Engine Light + Maintence problems

I just bought a 97 jeep and I am still kind of a newbie at driving manual. I don't have the manuals for the wrangler, and I just need some basic questions answered.

My first question: Does the jerking motion when you are going into first gear cause any damage to the wrangler? I was learning how to drive and the check engine light came on after I semi-stalled a couple of times.

2nd Question: How much coolant should be in the tank? I know it's just a reservoir tank, but when I look in the tank, there is absolutely no fluid at all in the tank, is that normal? What kind of anti-freeze to add if it's too low?

3rd question: The motor oil is somewhat low and I'm going to add some more. What kind is best?

The check engne light probabley only came on because the clutch was probabley getting hot or maybe the jerking lossend a wire but i doubt it.
