You say you have learned a lot of things. The one thing you still have to learn is that caulking, cementing, or any other patch job, regardless of how hard it is to get to the pipe, will not be a permanent repair and you will have to do it right at some time, assuming the patch job has not made it impossible to do correctly. Do whatever you have to to tighten, or replace, the leaking part. Or call a plumber to do it.

: Here is my problem. I installed a new tub and drain assembly. This is my first time doing something like this and they say you learn from mistakes. Well, I am learning A LOT.

: So anyways, my drain assembly is leaking. The assembly is not easily accessible and I want to just caulk the seam that is leaking, but I can't reach it that easily. So my question is, is there some sort of nozzle I could use to get in there or is there a sealant of sort I could pour down the drain that would seal problem connection? Thanks in advance for any help.
