Question about 2000 Ford Focus
The drum and hub are one assembly on that vehicle so you will need to remove the dust cap in the center of the drum and remove the large axle nut. The drum/hub/bearing assembly will then pull off of the spindle.
If you want to replace the drum you will either have to find one with a bearing already installed, Have your old bearing pressed out of the old drum and pressed into the new drum, or have new bearings pressed into the new drum.
When installing the new drum it is very important to tighten the axle nut to the proper spec. I can get that spec for you if you need it.

I'll go with the other solution but never put an old bearing in a new hub.
Get/borrow a manual which will have the torque settings and any other help with the correct setting and assembly of the shoes, park brake cable etc before refitting the drum. If the car has done more than 75k miles in normal use the drums will likely need replacing due to wear anyway.
