    Piece of cake with the right tools. You need a chain whip and the right adapter fitting for your cassette (Shimano vs Camp.) plus an open end wrench. As I remeber the total cost between them was around $15 at Supergo.

    I just treated myself to the book "Zinn and the Art of Road Bike Maintenence", neat book, nice BIG drawings of stuff, imparts a lot of info with a minimum of fuss :-)

    Installing does require a chain whip. The direction you turn the locknut is the same as the drive direction. You may want to use a chain whip on a freewheel just to tighten it down a bit.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
