If you have to ask this question maybe you should be thinking of not attempting this task and should consult a professional to do the job.

Yes , but it is very time consuming and if you have never replaced head gaskets before then I would not suggest that this vehicle be your first.

for the 2.2L OHV:
(pully 8 4 1 5 9 <-- long bolts @ 63Nm (46ft/lb)
side ) 7 3 2 6 10 <-- short bolts / 10 is the stud @ 58Nm (43ft/lb)
for the 2.4l dohc are as follows:
(pully 9 3 1 5 7
side) 10 6 2 4 8
bolts 1-8 torqued to 65Nm (40ft/lb)
bolts 9-10 torqued to 40Nm (30ft/lb)
then (either engine) give each an additional 90° (¼) turn
it's best to do the tightening in stages, you don't want to go completely tight on the first pass or there will problems and you'll get to do it all over again
