Being from Australia I don't know the brand, but Dexron II is Dexron II, no matter the brand.
Steel wool on chrome is fine. Keep in mind though that nothing will really help with die cast parts that have pitted right through to the zinc metal.
The diff leak is from the front pinion seal. I looked it up in my manual once but there were so many special tools required that I didn't bother, and handed the job over to a mechanic. But a guy did send me some pics of various pullers etc that he made up for the job - seemed like he had more time in making the tools than doing the job itself! I think the tightness of the main nut was critical too and I got scared.
