Welcome to just answer!!

Yes this can be done at home you will need a 10mm swivel socket so you can get to some of the bolts . Nothing will fly off when you remove it . I would go to the dealer and get the right silicone that is used for the oil pan its only like $25 .heres a picture to help you out on where all the bolts are.
