I thought it doesn't hurt your car to stay in overdrive. because personally I just stay in o/d

Take your shift knob off. There is a clip which needs to be pulled out - then pull up on the knob. You should see the OD connector, it will be a white plasitc bar with 2 wires. Touch the 2 contacts together with a screwdriver or something to see if the OD light will turn on.

in the front of the shifter itself, there should be a little slit in the leather, there is a plastic clip in there that needs to come out and then lift straight up on the leather knob

Yes you can, all you need is a momentary switch.
