Valve cover has to come off, several plastic trims to remove not too difficult, be very careful of the spark plug wire routing after you have replaced the valve cover and associated seals. Make sure you properly secure the "distributor" wire connector at the front so it does not foul the fan belt after your repairs. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website
and get an online repair manual subscription. There are two companies that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subscription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores and much cheaper than the factory manual try Alldata which is very easy to navigate or Mitchell on line and get an online repair manual subscription. Alldata would be my favorite of the three.
