SOURCE: Oil Pan Gasket
Before removing the oil pan, drain all the oil from the car. You should be able to remove the pan with basic tools, not sure what socket size though. Once you have the pan off compare the new gasket with the new one to make sure it is the right one. Scrape off the old gasket and replace with the new using a high temp gasket sealant to attach the gasket. Bolt back on to the engine refilling with new oil and checking for leaks. NOTE: your oil pump is protected by your oil pan so be careful not to hurt while sliding in and out of place

The oil pressure switch is located on top at the
transmission end of the engine.
If the switch is leaking, it could appear to be coming
from the places you mentioned. Hope this helps.
