Never flown that plane, but I would take a look at the radio stack for altitude controls, and probably look for a heading bug on the heading indicator that you can use to set this. That's certainly how it works on the C172.

You could use keyboard commands. Z to activate autopilot.
If you want you could add switches if you cannot find them.
Cockpit commander will aid adding most inputs.

Be a little more specific and the forum member can help locate controls by reviewing same aircraft.

OK, finally did the sensible thing and actually looked at the aircraft. Alt and VS are set on the radio stack - right at the bottom, as you noticed. To set heading, adjust the heading bug using the small dial to the bottom right of the heading indicator. It's marked with a little orange symbol.

Have fun! 😀
