If you don't know whan the last time the timing belts (yes, 2 belts) were changed, then go ahead and do it. Maybe the water pump as well, since you'll be in the same general vicinity.
As far as the AC goes, there are three things I will generally go to a shop for . Alignments, Exhaust and AC. Just more trouble than its worth to deal with at home IMO.. Unless theres an obvious compressor failure or something.

The timing belts need to be changed every 60k miles so have that done, as Calebz mentioned. I would also have all the fluids changed so you will know where you stand on that. Be sure to use NGK plugs when you swap them.
The alternator is a little weak so you may have trouble with that later. I have service manuals for the car if you need some info later on.
