How can I use "create image effects," or "transitions" to smooth the finished GIF?

What do you mean by smoothing the GIF exactly? Do you have any examples?

If I take an existing GIF and convert the frames into JPEG's, then manipulate each JPEG (put a beer in somebody's hand or exchange heads on an animal), when I convert it back into a GIF the flow is a little jumpy. I see a number of alternative transitions in the program , but none smooth the transition between frames.

Well, of course, it's not magic :) No software can guess what happens between the frame with no beer and the frame where the person is holding the beer. There is some academic research going on in this area (use machine learning to create animation from a still frame or frames) but although the results look interesting, it's far from production ready. For now, you will have to do like animators do it and draw each frame by hand.
