They are separate.  The rotor and hub are connected to each other with 4 bolts.  Get new spindle washers and castle nut while you're at it.  Torque to spec upon install.

Do you need to replace the hubs, or just the wheel bearings?

You can press out the axle and bearings with a 3 lb hammer, a block of wood, and a drift.

The hubs and the spindle where the bearings are held are 2 different pieces on these cars as well.
