The valve cover gasket should be simple enough.
1. Locate the valve cover, and clear the way for it to come out.
2. Loosen the valve cover bolts in an even fashion.
3. clean and scrape the gasket surface on both the head, and the valve cover.
4. replace in opposite order.

I don't have experience with this engine but guess you won't have to remove it for valve cover gasket work but perhaps can lift it a bit [not by hand!] after loosening engine mounts.

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.
When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

ALL DATA time to R&R valve cover gaskets both sides is 2.1 hours. you will need to remove brackets and connectors on either side, It will also help to take the upper plenium bolts out but not completly pull the plenium. If you don't have a lot of mechanical experiance and some basic tools. you may want to consider to have a local a shop to perform this service for you after you get a estimate. RON.

remove all the components in the way of the valve cover. Then remove the valve cover and replace the gasket and reassemble.
usually about a 3 to 4 hour job.
