As I recall this is a front wheel drive car, if so, your answer is "yes" you'll need to pull the engine and most likely the axles to change the transmission. Your best bet is to pick up a Haynes or Chilton manual ($25) for your car.

Bad oil leak

Well, they need separating to get to the seal, so if the transmission can be removed without pulling them both out at once, you could do the seal with the engine in the car and the transmission removed. Buy a Haynes repair manual and see if transmission can be removed with the engine in the car. You will need a manual, anyway, for either procedure-either engine and transmission together out of the car, and then separated, or the transmission alone removed.

Remove a flywheel

The clutch come out with the engine since it is bolted to the fly wheel. If you had an automatic transmission then you would need to remove the torque converter bolts from the flywheel so that the torque converter would stay in the transmission. If you pulled the manual transmission the clutch would stay attached to the flywheel. It's the same when pulling the engine.

I need to change a clutch on a 2000 Dodge neon 2.0. What is the easiest way to do it. I have done clutches on farm equipment but not a front wheel drive car so I only need a general process Thanks

You're going to need an engine hoist to hold the engine up and use a transmission jack to lower the transmission. This is hard to do, because the engine hoist's legs roll underneath the car, blocking access to dropping the transmission. It is easiest, to me, to just pull the engine and the transmission completely out of the car through the hood of the car as one unit. Separate the two while it's on the ground. Replace the clutch. Put the engine and transmission back together, and replace engine and transmission as one unit.
To pull everything out will take you one full day. Putting everything back usually takes two days. Note: take the radiator out as an un-headache precaution!

I need to replace the rear main seal on my 95 chevy pickup with a 350. do i need to drop the tranny?

Yes, either pull the trans or pull the engine. No way to get in there with out having one of the two out!
FYI it's very rare for a rear main on that engine to leak, Most all of the time it's the oil pan gasket or coming from higher up like a valve cover or the intake gaskets!

How would you pull/replace a gsi engine

I would pull them both if you don't have to have the car for awhile, that way you can replace both seals on the transmission whether they need it or not just to be sure. Other wise you could just replace the front seal on the transmission if you don't pull them both.
