Oil leaks can be more difficult to find if they've been around for a while. I would suggest cleaning up the area really well with an engine degreaser since once the area is clean, it will be easier to find the leak. Just take a short drive, let the car cool down, and go look for the leak. If you're not sure which system is leaking (e.g. engine vs transmission), you can buy a UV dye kit to narrow the problem down.

Likely just the valve cover gasket. If it's the front cylinder bank then it should be pretty straightforward, but if it's the rear bank near the firewall it's quite a bit more work since you would have to remove the window cowl and upper intake plenum--might as well do the spark plugs too if doing all that work.

Did the place you bought it from offer you any kind of warranty?
