Rear main / seperator plate replacement

Are these two repairs possible with the engine in the car? Some repair manuals I've found state that the engine has to come out.

Most people wait for clutch replacement time to do these repairs.

I've seen the reports of clutch changes done by sliding the engine forward (with the radiator removed) but I wasn't sure if you could get to the plate or rear main seal with that procedure.
If I was to remove the transmission, does that require special (Subaru-specific) tools to remove the front half-shafts?

i don't think any special tools are required to remove the half shafts. someone else should be able to back that up.

I believe all it takes is a 3/16" pin punch to knock out the roll pin on the inboard end of the axle, just like on the older Subarus?

Did all Subarus meet CA Tier 1 regulations that year, or is this a CA-only model?
The reason I ask is I know on older cars it can be a pain to located CA-only emission parts.
