I never really paid attention to the shield between the transmission and the engine, I though it had a purpose somehow.

To lift the engine, I used the engine block opening at the back of the engine (like a big hole on the driver side design to lift the engine) and for the front, I used the BMW special hook that is in the engine also. I didn't have to make anything each time I had to lift a bmw engine.

The hoist was cheap so I bought it along with an engine stand. Very handy.
