is that a US market radio (same frequencies)?
whats the easiest aftermarket radio to install that plays cd's and doesnt protrude from the dash?

That's a sweet radio, but it's going to take more work than putting in a simple aftermarket DIN-sized stereo.
If you have any questions, feel free to PM me, I used to install stereos for a living.

As for getting it to fit, take the Metra dash kit and cut out the opening to fit a double-DIN radio - that's a 4"x7" opening. Make yourself some brackets that'll hold the radio nice and tight in that opening and secure it in place.
Wire the big fella all up, and you should be good to go.
As for rear speakers, I haven't put them in mine, but I've done it a few times in EA82s. You'll have to run a new set of speaker wires all the way back to the speaker harness at the base of the B-pillar to eliminate the front-to-rear common-ground speaker wiring.
