    If you replace the engine, the new engine will come with a new chain. If you rebuild it, then I would replace it, it is isn't that expensive and good insurance. but as long as the chain is tight and not stretched, you could reuse it.

Is there a reason you are changing it, unlike a belt they do not really need changing every so many thousands of miles/kilometres. If there is no problem, I personally would be loath to change it. As for the time to change it, here is the first of various videos to help you, the others follow on.

1996 Ford Windstar GL jumped time


The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft by either a belt or chain. These have to stay in line or in (time ) with each other, If not the engine may not run correctly, if at all or worse can break stuff. In case you dont know, the crankshaft pushes the pistons up and down and the camshaft opens the valves so gas can go in and exhaust out. ( very simplified )
