Question for the more knowledgeable here, can I use the same RTV sealant I used to seal the bulkhead to the engine block for the transmission housing? If not, what off the shelf RTV can I use?

Transmission needs to be sealed with an ANAEROBIC sealant to prevent leaks. I don't know what you used on the engine block, but the trans is probably different since it has standing fluid to contend with, and not just splashing oil.

Advance Auto carries a standard Permatex Anaerobic gasket maker; it's not anything exotic.

going together with the motor + trans soon and I've been looking everywhere to find a new pilot bearing, every mtx vehicle I've worked on has a pilot bearing but it looks like this one doesn't, am I crazy?

Nope. Everything necessary there is included in the throw-out bearing assembly.
