In my 95 Impreza, When I turn the AC on, a chirp can be heard from the engine bay (it was squeeling last summer but I had the belts tightened up), and it spews red dust all over the place. Inside the cabin, I can hear it "hissing" through the vents.

as for special tools, you will need a vacuum pump to evacuate the sytem, but it might be best to have the system evacuated and charged at a shop. make sure they add the proper amount of oil to the system.

If the belts are tight, and you're still getting squealing and tons of red dust. I'd say at the very least the clutch is dieing/dead, or the compressor needs to be replaced.
If you do the work yourself, put the oil in yourself and just have them evacuate the system and put the refridge in.

Not very difficult. If you have R12, I'd suggest converting it to 134a. I've got a pretty detailed write-up in the archives
