Check Engine light code P0442 and all of a sudden ABS light came on and car is moving. I want to know if my transmission is bad or if it has to do with the leak associated with the code or a sensor

The code you received should not effect the transmission directly. You will want to want to repair the EVAP  system leak to save your gas mileage and improve engine performance. If you are having signs of a transmission problem, this is likely unrelated and is cause for a separate concern.
