Yes it is for the Inverter, but it will depend on your skill, and patience. (Not trying to sound 'uppity')
It is my belief that you can do it. The Backlight is a little tougher. Again, it depends on you.
I would recommend buying, and wearing an ESD wrist s trap. (<- certain words key censure, hence the typing error on purpose)
Average cost of one is around $6 U.S.
(Radio Shack is one example of a store that has them)
The alligator clip is connected to a good ground. I connect mine to the metal frame of an empty desktop computer case.
Your body carries static electricity. Static will fry out delicate computer hardware components. The Electro Static Discharge wrist device prevents this.
Before you start, Remove the AC adapter, (Charger), and Battery.
This is HP Support, and the page to download the Maintenance and Service Guide. (It is a Service Manual) This will show you how to remove the Inverter, and the LCD screen to get to the Backlight. Does not show you how to replace the Backlight. The Backlight bulb is a CCFL bulb. USE care when handling, and rubber gloves are advisable. This is to protect You if the bulb is accidentally broken when removing, or installing. It is a Cold Cathode ->Fluorescent Light.

If the back light is out you won't be able to change the brightness at all. Make sure it's plugged into a power source for full brightness, you can also try and change the settings for your monitor by right clicking on your desktop and clicking personalize and display settings.
