Which line are you disconnecting, and from where? More information is needed. Are you trying to do a line off exchange?

That is the correct one. Put a short piece of hose on the nipple to dump it in a 5 gal bucket. The front pump does not run in park so you will have to put the tranny in neutral. About 12 quarts through it should do the flush and then top it back off.

With it running in neutral, keep adding fluid until you get the 12 quarts in. When the stream starts to get low, shut off and hook the cooler line back up. Then top it off. I usually get my teenage son to start and shut off the Jeep when I do mine. About the time I get the cap off on one bottle and get it poured in, it's time for another.

That sucks. Well look at the bright side, you now know how to do a DIY transmission fluid exchange, with no fancy equipment!

No need for alarm yet. The case vent is in the front pump about the 10:30 or 11:00 position. If it got overfilled while you were pouring fluid in, this is where it is going to come out. Chances are, if the seal wasn't leaking before, it's still ok. Give it a few days to find level if it is overfilled. By the way, I usually intentionally overfill mine by a half to one quart. Helps from dry sucking the pan when on an incline while wheeling.

Good point. I stopped doing line exchanges for that reason, and the possibility of messing up a line going to the radiator on older vehicles. Every 30K I drop the pan and screen, fill up the tranny drive it and use my miti-vac to extract the ATF via the fill tube. I fill it up drive a day and repeat until I've run another 12 qts through the system. I never let the ATF get dirty enough to pose a problem. A line flush might be a slightly better way of doing it, but with an older vehicle that has been well maintained I like using the miti-vac method.
