Good morning Steve. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your microwave today. First, the handle you'll need to order is part number(###) ###-####just to make sure you got the correct part. As for replacing the handle, yes you need to open the door and remove the 2 screws on the side of the microwave door, then everything is clipped into place which you'll need to pry on with a putty knife or flat head screwdriver to release. Below is a video that shows you how the door comes apart although it doesn't have the 2 screws coming in from the side like yours does so be sure to remove those screws first.

I've never needed new screws. The receptacles on the handle just strip out usually. Ps556624 is the old part number, but below is the handle it crosses to now.

Yes, that part will work---it's the same part. If the screw looked broken then I would order it and replace it. I'm not sure how a metal screw would break since it screws into a plastic receptacle, but you can see it more clearly than I can since I'm not there so I would order whatever you think is damaged.
