Try some searches on how to adjust the clutch, as I bet there are better descriptions written then I could type out right now

Unbolt intake from engine, set with all hoses and wiring still together on spare tire shelf; disconnect pitch rod, unbolt the tranny, break motor mounts loose, pull engine up and forward and then out of the car(dont know if you need to remove radiator or not). As far as I know its something that can be done in a few hours and is much easier pulling the engine rather than dropping the transmission. It's nice to have a guy help you lift the engine out of the car if you dont have a cherry picker, it can be done alone easy if you have to though.

In fact, you can remove the radiator, and just pull the engine forward enough to get the clutch out. Don't have to pull the engine at all. But it may be easier the first time to pull it completely.

the hard part is getting to the clutch. pull motor, transmission or try to slide them apart in the car like mentioned.

i replaced everything, TO bearing, TO bearing clips, pilot bearing, pressure plate and disc. and had the flywheel resurfaced. and the rear main seal. not really that much stuff, clutch kit basically has everything you need clutch related except the TO Bearing clips (different set up if yours is FWD, mine is AWD) and rear main seal. flywheel machined for $30-$60 depending on local rates.
if you don't want to replace everything you can check the TO bearing and pilot bearing for play/noise when you remove them. they are usually not too nice on the ones i've pulled. you could just buy new bearings for them too, which would be cheaper if you can install them yourself or the machine shop has good prices.
