87 Ranger Dual fuel tanks questions

I have recently purchased a 87 ford Ranger xcab that has 6cyl 2.9L motor. Well my question is, this truck has 2 fuel tanks and only one will show on the fuel guage. What could be wrong with the other one and how do I fix it?

Also, The automatic transmission is rough going into gears and in the morning it has to warm up a little before shifting from 1st to 2nd. What could be the problem?

Thanks,
JM
