It is easy to see the waterpump because it has to be driven by the engine belts up from the crankshaft.
But there are many different engines and they have different pumps.
The link shows what they look like.
If it is run by the camshaft timing belt, then you should also replace that, and have to make sure you set the engine to TDC on #1 before you start, so that you can ensure you set the timing correctly.
If you have to deal with the timing belt, you should get a manual to be sure.
Otherwise it is only powered by V belt, and is easy to do.
But you should probably also change the thermostat if it overheated.
And if it comes with a paper gasket, use some sealing compound. If it comes with an O ring, you don't need to use anything.

Peugot 106 got warter under rocker cover and white creamey gung going from the breather from the rocker to the air filtter been told its not head gasket

So it's not the head gasket? And you are still losing coolant? Well, okay, you will have to find how the water is getting into the rocker, and whether it's your lost coolant or plain water. IDK, possibly an intake manifold leak?
Even though the oil looks clean, the water and gunge in the rocker area will drain into the sump and contaminate the oil. If it's not the coolant, run the engine until it is hot, then give it a few minutes for the oil and water to drain down from top of the engine into the oil sump. Then change the oil and oil filter. Good luck, hope you find the problem.

Need diagram to install serpentine belt on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi

There should be a diagram under the hood on the fan shroud or radiator support. If not, let me know and I see if I can find one. For the most part, if the pulleys it rides on are grooved, the belt ribs ride on it, it the pulley is smooth, the back side rides on it. From a picture of the alternator I have, from the passenger side coming up, over the alternator, then down and under the belt tensioner (smooth pulley), then up and over A/C compressor, then down and around P/S pump, up and around water pump, down around crankshaft pulley.

Replacing a water pump for a 1992 Cadillac Sedan Develle

First, you must exactly locate the source of the leak. Replacing the water pump will not solve your problem if it is leaking from the lower radiator hose.

Unless if the water pump bolts came completely out and your water pump is ready to fall off (very unlikely), water pumps normally leak through a "weep" hole which at best would show as a steady trickle.

The size of leak you describe sounds more like a split radiator hose ($20 + 1 hr to install).

Did you ever replace the thermostat? If it is stuck then it would also cause overheating...Excessive exhaust backpressure because of a clogged catalytic converter could also cause overheating..Also check belt tension and condition. A loose belt that slips may prevent the water pump from circulating coolant fast enough and/or the fan from turning fast for proper cooling...Another thing it could be is a faulty Water pump -- Any wobble in the pump shaft or seepage would call for replacement. In some instances, a pump can cause an engine to overheat if the impeller vanes are badly eroded due to corrosion or if the impeller has come loose from the shaft. The wrong pump may also cause an engine to overheat. Some engines with serpentine drive belts require a special water pump that turns in the opposite direction of those used on the same engine with ordinary V-belts... Also check the Fan -- With mechanical fans, most overheating problems are caused by a faulty fan clutch, though a missing fan shroud can reduce the fan's cooling effectiveness by as much as 50% (depending on the fan's distance from the radiator) which may be enough to cause the engine to overheat in hot weather or when working hard.
