those are not power steering lines - those are as you suspected, transmission fluid lines. it's just a tube inside the radiator, so it doesn't matter which side is inlet/outlet.
the power steering system doesn't have any cooling apparatus.
it's possible the pump is making the noise you just never noticed it before and are now more attentive having completed a big job.
