I would start with 10 quarts, start the car and let the engine warm up then add more if needed. Just make sure your using the transmission dip stick to check the level of the fluid. When its full according to the dip stick then get in the car and put in all gears a few times, put in park check the level on the dip stick again.

Yes, Dex VI supercedes Dex III and is backwards compatible.
