All of them, as the MoBo is where the cooling fan is drawing air over the Prossesor. Experience is a plus.

How do I take apart to clean fan part real black

Hi Sherin,
You have to remove the screw or undo the clip which locks the front half of the fan cage to the back half. Then you can split the cage open, exposing the fan. You should be able to remove the fan impellor itself either by just pulling it off or by undoing a screw. Once cleaned, reverse the order to reassemble.

How to fix noisy fan?

look for the fan opening, get a can of air and blow it threw the fan vent, while the computer is off, than let it set for a few minutes than start it back up, if fan is still noisy, than you need a new fan installed.
if you want to do the work yourself you can do it your self. now if you dont want to try it than i have a few place to take it for service.
acer authorized dealer, best buy, or if you have a friend that you trust that will fix it for little to nothing except cost of parts, the fan part for the acer should be around 7-10.00 dollars + labor + shop fees. TO FIX LAPTOP CPU FAN

How to open case on acer 3050

The method I would use is as follows:

Plugged into a power strip that is turned off but plugged into an outlet ( to keep a good ground to discharge ESD to ground), remove all covers and screws from the bottom (keeping all covers and screws in an order that you'll remember to reverse on reassembly), then if the case doesn't separate look for screws on top and sides (may be hidden by rubber plugs, so look closely). Either use a grounding strap to your wrist (especially in cooler drier climates), and or touching the metal on the case frequently to discharge the static electricity accumulated in your body, Then you may be able to get to the fan from the bottom or may have to continue disassembly to get to the fan on the other side (usually called component and solder sides) of the MoBo?
I couldn't/didn't find any pictorials on your particular laptop, and this is just generic information I go by and just My humble opinion on how to go about it, so please keep that in mind. BTW I have opened dozens of laptops over the years with successfully opening repairing and closing all that were worth the effort/cost.
Good luck, and I hope this post helps you.
