SOURCE: Water pump on 2005 Chevy Equinox
Water pump is locate on the front center of the engine.
I will rate water pump change as a 7/10 in difficulty scale.
You should check for special tool(s) requirement from the library before you start.
It's a good time to change the drive belt at the same time.
50/50 coolant mix is fine.
If you haul heavy load or in cold climate then bump it up to 60/40 mix
DO NOT FORGET to find or draw the belt routing diagram before you undo the tension.
A 30 second sketch will save you a lot of time.

SOURCE: 2005 chevy equinox overheating..
I can almost guarantee you have a blown head gasket. I had all of these symptoms too. Bubbles in the antifreeze resevior when cool, loosing antifreeze when driven and finally smell and white smoke out the exhaust. Even a pressure check of the radiator came out fine. This seems to be a common problem with the 05 Equinox due to aluminum heads. Cost me about $1600 to fix but the new gaskets are supposed to be made to withstand the expanding of the aluminum heads. Good luck!

You can buy a flush kit from your local auto supply store to add to your cooling system for this and future flushing. As for changing your thermostat - simply remove the thermostat housing - remove the old thermostat - replace with new (be sure it is the one rated for the season at hand) - replace gaskets (or use RTV gasket maker) and reinstall housing. Fill the system with proper % ratio of coolant to water (usually 50/50). Drive away happy.:) PS You can find your thermostat housing by following the top rad hose from the rad back to it at the intake manifold.
