Instructions vary depending upon if its a stick or automatic transmission. Your best bet if you haven't ever done anything like that is to get yourself a chilton or haynes manual. Both have text and pictures to help with the job. With hanynes, you may need the transmission manual instead of the regular repair one if its an automatic...check the contents before you buy it.
When doing an automatic, it's advisable to remove the crank sensor from the bellhousing as often they get damaged accidentally when working in there. If you need to remove the flywheel, make sure you mark it's position so you can put it back exactly the same way it was installed.
Make sure you have a flat solid area to work on. Transmissions need to be supported so notheing get's damaged. To do that, you need a place where you can move a jack easily. If you need to work on dirt etc, buy a sheet of 5/8" plywood to put underneath.
