You have 3 differentials. Front and rear are open (non locking), centre is a TorSen mechanically auto-locked.

Do you have to change the fluid in the center one
You should. It’s a part of the transfer case, and has moving parts that get warm and break down the oil.

Do you use the same oil in the Torsten as the transfer case and if so how much is needed
Your TorSen centre differential is inside the transfercase, they use the same fluid.

Are there two different places to change the fluid for both the transfer case and the TorSen fluid and if so how much fluid does the the TorSen take
They are one combined unit. Same fluid, same drain/fill holes. 0.7L comes to mind.
