I bought my dart last year and 3 months later i smell something terrible so i thought clutch or brakes or maybe oil. There have been spots on the ground where i parked and since it snowed i could see it was black. Friend said it was just ac condensing. Car has 70,000k miles on it. Today when i backed up i noticed dark spots and then i looked around and found this spot with oil. What is the black plug? It is not a screw and there is oil all around the area. What could be causing the oil leak?

That is a vent for the trans. The oil is probably coming from elsewhere. You heard about gravity? Take a few things off to get a better view.

its your pvc oil seal.... the big clunky thing with 3 10mm bolts... take that off and replace the seal... its on top of your valve cover

Are you talking about the pcv valve? is the valve in the same spot as in this video? (can't post a link) Is it the same as in other multiair chrysler engines? I will take a look after school but how would the pcv cause a oil leak?

I have been looking online for pcv valve for dodge dart but only valves for 2.0/2.4L version and I have a 1.4. I cant seem to find one that fits my engine.

The 1.4L PCV valve seems to be available as part of the entire assembly only, not listed as a separate part.

The issue most have had is with the O-ring and resolves once this is replaced - plenty of threads on that here. I believe most have replaced with a Viton O-ring.
