I dont know the layout on that machine but the hydraulic cooler is probably in series with the filter and if it is above the filter it will drain out.  Maybe 4 or 5 gallons? Have a few clean pails ready.  I used to have a $10 home depot plastic cement pan that was perfect for those jobs

Thats hard to say if bobcat made them single or dual.  Does it look like there is space for an inner?  Does the canister have any witness marks from one seated there in the past?

I'd run whatever the manual calls for. I'd imagine it's an ISO hydraulic fluid, probably a 46 weight, but I'm just guessing. Don't go with the cheapest you can find. I use the oil from our local bulk supplier, I think it's about $10 a gallon.

I started running 15/40 synthetic with a defoamer additive in ALL my industrial hydraulic systems in 1978. 

Had an 76, 1840 Uni-loader that blew out 2 pumps and a drive motor before warranty was up. On the last trip to the case dealer for the repair job, Case put in the 15/40 with the defoamer and the rest is history. Traded it up to an 82, 1845 but never turned a bolt on the hydraulics again in almost 5000hrs. 

The 1845 is still running at just past 20,000 hrs. Had full tear down rebuild of engine, pumps, motors, rams and bushings at just shy of 17,000 as it was just plain tired and I did an engine refresh at just shy of 9000 before I sold it. Other  than a few hoses and bucket bushing that thing has been a good and reliable little work horse on the farm. Ran 2 more 1845Cs up to 7-8000 ish hrs with the 15/40 mix with narry an issue.
