i know my way around basic mechanics, but nothing too fancy. is this job doable on my own? what do i do about any intense corrosion/rust i might find at the gasket between the rear pipe and the assembly?

Sawzall, universal muffler, 2 repair sleeves and 4 clamps. Done.
If you want to do stock-style, start hosing bolts down with PBblaster or Kroil NOW. Usually, the bolts snap before unscrewing, so be prepared to drill the bolts out of the flange. You might get lucky and they come apart easily though.
I cannot remember if the studs are in the muffler pipe or in the exhaust pipe. If studs are in the muffler pipe, just cut the nuts off and slip new pipe into the exhaust pipe's flanges(exhaust pipe is the long one under the car)
I usually just found a universal muffler, hacked the old one off and installed repair sleeves.

Very simple 2 14mm bolts and the hangers.
The bolts were rusted pretty good so i cut them off with a sawzall then its just came apart. I bought some new stainless bolts and put it back together
Now if you were going aftermarket id recomend having it welded.
