See Oznayim la'Torah, who explains why the Tosefta derived this from this Pasuk. He also queries this explanation from the Eil ha'Olah, in Pasuk 15, where the Torah writes "Vesamchu" (in the plural), whereas in Pasuk 19, regtarding the Eil ha'Milu'im (the second ram, the Torah again writes "Ve'samach" (see the Oznayim la'Torah's extensive elaboration)

Where exactly, did Moshe Shecht the bull?

1.

Rashi: In any part of the Azarah 1 which was situated in front of the Ohel Mo'ed.
