** The actual model number is a GSS22KGPA doing a google on that gives ZERO hits. **
The actual model number includes the color designation too (CC in your case - although the space between is omitted).
Whether you can find the real/complete model number listed in a Google search is irrelevant. Not every piece of information ever created will be able to be found by Google. To allow others the best chance to know what you're dealing with, the complete information should always be supplied.
** on the GE site it find 3 refigerators GSS22KGPxx where XX is color. **
There is also another letter missing before the color designation in the above which is critical to the appliance's identification. Eg.
The "A", "C", "D", "H" and "J" is important to the proper appliance identification, the model 'series' (aka. age of model introduction). The "BB", "CC" and "WW" just the color designations but will often be needed to be included to pull up the proper information in searches.
** what controls the refrigerator temp.I do see a part in the top "DAMPER & THERMISTER ASM". Is that it. **
... in combination with the electronic control and the evaporator (freezer) fan, yes.

** Does it just only an air door to the freezer side. **
That's how most frost-free refrigerators work (see the following link).
- My frost free refrigerator is not cooling properly. What might be the problem?

** I was expecting to see a fan. **
There is a fan... but in the freezer compartment. Some models might have two inside but that is rare. (Many will also have another but outside the fridge).
** shows the graphic breakdown of the refigerator. **
Yes, exploded parts diagrams can be helpful, although they are not in as complete detail as blue prints, etc..

** I found that the back "wall" was held in place with two screws at the top and also taped at the bottom **
I thought it would be.
** I could access the coils and they where frosted up. The only question, which time will tell, is if the problem was caused by the door not being sealed (which I am not sure of) or if there is a problem with the defrost system. **
You'll probably know in a week or so, if the temperatures start increasing. :/
The way they build fridges today toward energy conservation, there operation doesn't allow a lot of leeway for mishaps (like occasionally leaving the door open) like older models could. Today they basically just do enough to get the designated job done and not much more. :(
