Not too difficult of a repair. While is have not worked directly with the engine you need to start first by disconnecting the ground to the battery. From here examine your engine bay for what items you'll have to remove or move to gain access to the cover(s). I expect you may have to remove the alternator, spark plug wires, other electrical connectors and perhaps the plenum and throttle body. Take your time to note what goes where, take digital photos, make a sketch or whatever to assist you in getting in back together properly. Use a torque wrench (aluminum will strip easily) be certain not to over tighten the valve covers, too tight and you can deform them. Take your time, keep it neat and enjoy the process.
I hope this may have helped,

Valve cover gaskets leaking, how to change valve cover gaskets 1999 rodeo

this is a preaty easy job if you dont have to much to remove it get to it.. i havent change them on a isuzu but they are all about the same make sure you get everything you need first at the auto store, tell them what you are doing and they can get you the proper replacment gaskett.. some folks like the glue gaskett comes from a tube you just squeese in place. some the fabric gaskett whitch is pre-cut and lays in the gaskett cover when you replace it. ether way the cover will need to be scraped clean and the surface on the motor where the gaskett and cover sitts will need the same done. [ razor blade works good] this takes the longest to do but has to be done well to insure a good seal when replacing the cover after all thats why you are doing this it leaks. if you have never done this before i suggest go to type in VALVE COVER GASKETS and watch a few videos this will tell you if its something you want to do yourself .there are alot of ones to watch and dont worry if they are not doing it on the exact kind of car you have they are all the same concept. if you have to remove alot of things and you have a digital camera just take a before picture so when your putting things back together if you need to refure to the pics you know where they went. i dont think youll have this problem with this project it was something i did when i started working on cars to help me remember. i hope you find this info helpfull

Hearing ticking noise from my 1993 isuzu rodeo. Tried oil changes, additives etc. Need to know step by step instructions on replacing lifters.

I had same problem with 99 Isuzu Rodeo LS 3.2 V6. Dealer couldn't find it and many, many other owners experienced same thing. finally found a post where a mechanic (non dealer) changed the idle air control valve. so i tried it, and after 3 years of dealing with the problem, it worked!!! part costs about $40 and very, very easy to change yourself. for the 99, its located in front of engine, so easy access. Good Luck

I had the valve cover gasket changed on my 1996

on a v6 ? Low on oil? rear cam plugs leaking? The lifters are on the end of the rocker arms and may get clogged. I have had some luck running 0w30 mobil synthetic for about a week or so with a new oil filter [Not a fram filter] and after that put 10w30 synthetic oil back in and a new filter. Check for oil leaking at other locations. If the noise is at the front of engine near water pump it may be the hydraulic timing belt tensioner.
