Double check your fluid level.

Which fluids should we check? I'm absolutely clueless about cars and have no idea what fluids to check

You said you changed the transmission fluid. Check its level. If low it can cause this sort of issue. Check it with car running and in park. Unless otherwise stated on your dipstick.

The "skidding" that you describe sounds like maybe one or more of the brake calipers is stuck. Or possibly the parking brake isn't releasing. HTH. -Jim
