Exclamation Honda Transmission Fluid Not replaced with HONDA ATF Z1.

I purchased a 1997 Honda Accord LX 4-door. With 134k miles from a family friend. I have all the records for the car. My Accord SHIFTS hard and noticeably. But it doesn't seem to be going out. From what I have been reading hard shifting could be related to the use of non-honda atf fluid. Looking through the service records, it seems confirmed. I am seeing here a transmission service.
January of 2008 111,093 miles. (MANUAL TRANSMISSION SERVICE $39.99 "cost per part $2.50). Considering the price of the fluid, and the service being shown as manual (the car is automatic). I am pretty sure they used NON HONDA ATF. Since the car has 24k miles and roughly 18 months on that fluid, does that mean my transmission is destroyed? Can i go ahead and empty the fluid out, and replace it with the correct one? Does my trans have a filter that needs to be changed. How many quarts do I need to refill it with? How do I go about remedying this?
