For starters you're doing it totally backwards when it comes to tracking down an oil leak, you start from the top of the engine and work your way down. Why? It's called gravity. You need to clean the engine and start from the valve cover and work your way down until you find it. There should be absolutely no wet oil anywhere on the engine before you say it's the oil pan.

I may not no much, but I'm not ignorant. I have checked my engine, everything is clean, no wet oil anywhere or anything of that sort. I just sent my car to a family friend shop and she's going to give me an idea of whats wrong and how much things are gonna be to fix. Thanks though.

If the engine is dry then it is more than likely the rear main, only the front and rear crank seals will drip like that while the engine is running. You can see it's coming from that hole on the trans, it's purposely there so that the inner bell housing doesn't fill up with oil. Just like the other end the lower timing cover has a drip hole for the front crank seal.
