First, even if you replace it, you will still have the problem of losing coolant somewhere. How much coolant did you have to add & has adding it helped with the overheating issue?

Hard is a very relative term. Since I have no clue what your skill level is, how can I even begin to answer that? If you have ever replaced one before, nothing has changed except the location...which is above the A/C compressor.

There are no sensors on the thermostat to tell you it's working properly.

Thermostat replacement is covered in both the Haynes Malibu & Chiltons G6 books:
