Valve stem seals are about the easiest part of the job. If you don't have a valve spring compressor, rent one. Get the big c-clamp style one since you'll have the heads off. Compress the spring, pull out the retainers, SLOWLY release the spring, pull off the old seal, slide on the new one, and put the spring and retainers back on. The procedure is given in a bit more detail in your manual.

EA82 headbolts are NOT the "torque to yield" variety. They are reusable.

All Subaru bolts/studs are reusable. Even the torque to yeild variety are rarely replaced in practice. In fact most of the techs just torque them to a ft/lbs value rather than following the manual procedure for the EJ's. For anything prior to the EJ's the studs/bolts are not called out for replacement unless they are damaged.
