Right side is the trans and should not be smoking, unless it is from front section where the coolant recovery tank is. If that is the case, it should be steam, not oil burning.
Oil burning could be due to oil dropping onto the exhaust and it could be due to leaks from the oil filter, valve cover gasket and oil sump gasket.
You would need to check where the leaking is coming from.
