There are nuts at each side of the axel, on which the wheel turns. These may have to loosened by a spanner or may have quick release levers. If there are levers pull them outwards from the wheel and you can then turn them to release the wheel. Let all the air out of the wheel. Then insert 2 levers under the edge of the tyre, about 6 inches apart and pull the tyre out over the rim of the wheel. Put in your finger and pull the rest of the tyre over the rim. Then lever the other side of the tyre over the same side of the wheel and remove the tube. Replace the tube ensuring that the valve for pumping is in place first. Replace the tyre as far as possible by hand and use the levers for the final few inches taking care not to trap the tube between the lever and the rim of the wheel as this could cut the tube. Place the wheel back on the bike and tighten the nuts.

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.
