The leak is a sewer gas smell. I'm not a professional so I suppose I will need to call in a pro for a smoke test. I don't know how I would do that as a DIYer.

Your question is somewhat vague. How do you know you have a leak? Is there water showing somewhere? Follow the water back to the leak. Is the leak a sewer gas smell? Then smoke it.
Do a smoke test and do it from the vent on the roof you won't need to plug anything the smoke will come out where it's leaking I've done a lot of these and never had to plug the drain a water test you would need to plug
