You have a traditional torque-converter automatic gearbox - change-up speed will depend on the throttle position and load as there's no 'specific' engine speed.

I find gear box fine. But having to go forward by putting the gear stick in reverse and using forward position to reverse is a pain.

It's the AT8 which is a modernised version of the AL4; its a PSA unit but unlike the AL4 has a ZF torque converter - it's as old as the hills as the AL4 was first introduced in the mid 90's in the Peugeot 406 and Citroen Xantia, the AT8 was introduced about 5-6 years ago so the 308 (last model) has the same 'box as does the Citroen DS3 and C4 - it's generally cars running the 1.6VTi engine, other models such as 2.0HDi or 1.6THP don't use the same 'box. It might be old but it is compact and reliable.

I have a 2016 model 82 HP automativ with manual ger up/down by the steering wheel, no idea what model it is but for sure it it not smooth in shifting. Often shifts when I dont want it to. Also slow to start ending up with wheels spinning in roundabouts when I need to get going fast.

I have also tried to down shift down hill to spare braking but when stopping for a pause it smells from the gear box. Is it a bad idea to do this?

I also drive a 2007 Volvo V70 and it is way way more smooth one can barely feel the gear shifts. The problem with this is that I sometimes drive on emergency calls when I don´t have my work car with blue lights and passing cars etc makes this a pain in the ass to be frank when the delay comes from shifting gear.
