Not hard at all, many people have had O2 sensor problems if they have installed an aftermarket Cat ( Not Honda ) get new bolts and you should be done in under an hour.

My catalytic converter on honda odyssey is broken, is it possible cause on shifting for transmission problem


You can incur major engine damage if you don't get your catalytic replaced first. Afterward you can troubleshoot your transmission problem if you still have it.

P0420 error code honda odyssey


You don't necessarily need a new converter. I had this code on my 2006 Odyssey at around 150,000 miles for both the front and rear converter and only needed new downstream O2 sensors ($40 for the back, $60 for the front). This is why my car never sees the inside of a dealership shop, they're happy to replace your converter for >$1000 without even looking at the problem. A little troubleshooting goes a long way here. I grabbed an engine code reader from the local auto parts store and read the O2 sensors with the engine running and noticed the voltages on them were erratic, and they shouldn't be. Mine were reading ~ 0.8 volts, then would jump down to < 0.1 volts for a couple readings, then back up to 0.8. The downstream sensor readings should be fairly stable.

The Engine light is on. The gas cap is tight. I


I would take the Odyssey to Autozone (or some other of the same sort) and have them hook their reader up to you OBD-II port and get the exact codes that your malfunction light is indicating. They don't charge for that, and it will help you know exactly what the problem is.
Hope this helps you.

With regard to the Transmission, some Honda's have strict procedures to follow with their trany's.
I hope you never had it flushed by a Quick lube or something like that. Also the type of fluid is very special in some of them too so mixing them with regular ATF will cause problems. I worked for a Forein Car Specialist and know how important it is to use only the Honda recommended fluids in them. If the light went out you can reset the code and see if it returns, if it does you may want a reputable shop to professionaly flush your tranny and replace the oil with Honda recommended oil.
With regards to your Catalytic converter, unless you can hear it comming apart inside (bang on it and listen if it rattles) or if the car is running extremly rich (gas will ruin the cat) you may have a blocked or ruined muffler farther down the system which is slowing the flow through the cat.
I hope this helps.
Regards
Sam

Maybe the solution
There is a recall on the ignition switch,
My 99 Ody with 120K would suddenly switch off and come back while runing, Take it to dealer and report to Honda, Since out of warranty. The dealer would do the repairs estimated at $100 charge to you.
