Re-seat and clean all plug wires and clean coil post.. i found on my 97 that i had some corroded leads and dirty coil post. the evap could just mean the gas cap isnt on securely. Change "fuel filter" and purchase a can of "Sea Foam" @ Autozone.. pour in 1/2 can to half tank of gas and drive for 30 minutes and let it clean the injectors...if all this fails to correct the problem.. then it might just be the ICM.

2000 Chevy Camaro automatic, V6 3.8l engine, stalls then starts, how do I fix this problem

If it stalls out when hot and then restarts after it cools down it could be one of two things. The ignition module shutting the spark down or the fuel pump shutting the fuel off. Next time it happens pull a plug wire and ground it out and have someone crank it to see if you have a nice blue spark. Be careful to not shock yourself.

How do you change plugs and wires on a 1997 3800 v-6 CAMARO?

Pull wire, get spark plug socket and take them out. Reinstall new spark plugs with some anti seize grease so they come out easy next time.

How easy is it to use a 2005 v6 3.8 in a 1997 rs camaro

Well to start with, the last year for the gen 4 Camaro was 2002. So what is the 2005 engine supposed to fit ? It would have to be for a rear wheel drive car, and even then I doubt it would bolt up to a mid 1990s chassis and transmission. Especially the electronics and exhaust.
A salvage yard would have the interchange books to tell you how many years would fit your model.

Went for a smog check; failed with trouble codes P0300, P1441 and P1870? What do the codes indicate. I have a 1996 Camaro RS w/ v-6 3800, auto.

P1441 CHEVROLET - Evaporative Emission (EVAP) System Flow During Non-Purge
P0300 - Cylinder Misfire Detected Random Cylinders
Possible causes- Faulty spark plug 1
- Faulty ignition coils
- Ignition coils harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coils poor electrical connection
- Clogged or faulty fuel injectors
- Injectors harness is open or shorted
- Injectors poor electrical connection
- Improper spark plugs
- Insufficient cylinders compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Intake air leak
if you noticed that the closes relation those two have to each other has to do with a leak possible vacuum leak. look for hoses or grommets that are very soft, loose, cut or disconnected. the other code P1870 pertains to a transmission component slipping you should not need that for a smog check to pass
