Should I be scared changing my tranny fluid at 220k and not knowing the past changes? Could I run into even more problems with the trans?

No!

Looking at the diagram posted, tighten (clockwise) to cure slip or a 'slippy shift) and loosen (counter clockwise) to cure a snatchy shift would be my assumption.

I'd try flushing the transmission fluid first, before tackling the band adjustment as a last ditch effort.

Plenty of people have changed the transmission fluid at various miles including high milers. Lot's of good advice here Changing Automatic Transmission Fluid

And general consensus appears to prefer using the OEM Subaru filter for good measure.

One hundred percent do the fluid first, if you can and do adjust the band then correct the fluid you'll be adjusting it again!

So I just did a quick little fluid change and a piece of black plastic came out of the drain hole, is there something up in a 4eat that has black plastic or somehow along the way did it get this in it
