Can someone explain how the transmission cooler works and if the coolant level needs to be checked.

Assuming you're talking about a raw-water cooled system, it's just a simple heat exchanger. Water flows through it from the raw water pump on its way to the engine while transmission oil circulates around the outside of it. No level or anything to check, except to periodically make sure there are no weeds blocking the inlet side (there's a strainer there).
