Freeze plugs are on the engine block (sides)
They are nothing more than a steel plug that is designed to push out in the event of freezing to prevent the engine block from damage.
I just use a screw driver or other device to pry them out of the block. Once out, I clean the area and replace the plug with a new one. I start the plug into position and then, I place a small piece of wood over it and tap it in with a hammer. The wood keeps it straight when putting it in.
