2013 Nissan Sentra SV (AT)

my car info:
2013 Nissan Sentra SV, auto trans, 120k miles. Transmissions [trans] performs good under normal conditions, but If I'm on a incline and driving at a speed that causes a down shift in order to maintain that speed (80+), it starts to whine a little but maintains the speed. If I drop the speed to around 70mph, there is no whining and it drives fine.

After doing some research I found that aftermarket trans coolers can help extend the life of a trans, so I ordered one (Hayden 676), along with everything I need for a fluid change. I'm not a pro, but try to get under the hood in order to save myself hundreds of dollars if the job only require basic tools in order to complete the task.
All of the videos that I watched showed a return line coming from the radiator and going into the car's trans cooler. Well, since pulling off my bumper and inspecting my car, I see that the 2013 Sentra's trans fluid lines don't go through the radiator.
So here are my questions:
1. Will my car benefit from having a aftermarket trans cooler installed, even though the car's trans fluid lines aren't routed through the radiator for cooling?
If Yes,
2. Does it matter which line I connect the aftermarket trans cooler to? If there's a preferred one, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!!!
