Clean it off and put it back in the same spot it was in. It'* normal. Small particles wear and break down over time. This keeps them from circulating through the system.

Carefully remove the old one by prying an edge without damaging the aluminum on the trans.

Use vice grips to grab it and yank straight down. Insert new seal, press filter up into it.

The new filter should have come with a new seal. Use the new one.

Yes you can reuse the old plug seal/grommet "thingy" and gently push the new filter into it. I've used the old grommet twice now w/o any problems. Maybe I'll make a better effort to remove it the next time I change the trans oil.
