Do you use sealant on transmission pan gasket?
I install rubber trans pan gaskets dry, no sealer or RTV. Generally rubber gaskets need no sealer unless the mating surfaces are gouged to [censored] or otherwise damaged. I put a Felpro PermaDry valve cover gasket set on a Honda CRV today and the package specifically said to install dry with no sealers or chemicals.

These bolts should be just tight enough to seal the pan, but don’t apply too much force to the ratchet or you can strip the bolt threads. About one-half to three-quarters of a turn past snug should do it.

How long does it take to change a transmission pan gasket?
To give you an approximation though, the required hours are probably in the range of 8 to 12 hours, based on the procedure set forth in the Factory Service Manual; the gasket is not easy to access and there is a lot of disassembly required.
Is a cork gasket better than a rubber gasket?
Rubber gaskets last longer and seal better. Cork dries out, becomes hard over time, then cracks and crumbles. Rubber is also less likely to stick to parts and tear when you pull them apart multiple times. Rubber doesn’t permanently deform like cork.
Does RTV work?
RTV stands for room temperature vulcanizing. RTV silicone begins to cure immediately upon being exposed to air, as opposed to the curing agents in water-based sealants (for example, latex). It lends itself well to working as a sealer because it is water-repellent, adhesive and holds its shape.
