Power off. Open the case by pressing the buttons on the top and bottom of the computer. Make sure you ground youself to avoid any static from your hand doing any damage to the memory chips etc. The battery is like a small flat watch battery and should be easily visible. Replacement is simple - take note of the battery type, get a new one of the same type, unclip the old one and replace.

Identify each of the fans in the chassis in terms of its square size and thickness, is it 3 wire or 2 wire, confirm its voltage as 12 volt and what current it draws if it tells you on the label. Unfortunately due to the nature of Dell chassis design it its normally difficult to fit anything other than the standard size in the space provided and they mostly use either 80mm or 120mm fans. You than need to look for replacements with the highest airflow in cubic feet per minute (cfm) versus noise (dB). Zalman are normally credited with producing the quietest fans and if you can replace a 80mm with a 120 then you could use a separate speed controller to reduce the speed of the 120mm fan to a slower revs as they by default have a higher cfm (bigger area). This is where the current comes in as 120mm fans generally draw a higher current at full speed but you can normally get away with 1.5 times the stock fan current.
Beyond this requires some serious case mods but the most critical is the CPU fan. If the PSU is the problem them some Dell cases will allow you to fit standard models with bigger temperature controlled fans.
