Replacing the standard bulbs with it's led counter part should be about five mins a side ; if you want to change the whole assembly , time involved would depend on what type you have. Probably 20 mins.

It depends. On most vehicles you can just swap out the bulb with an LED, however, on some vehicles the light system is designed to operate within a specific load range so it can communicate the light system health to the vehicles computer. LEDs use less current than incandescent and therefore offer less resistance. If your vehicles light system is load sensitive you would need to add a resistor to the LED light to keep the light system operating in the range it needs. There are vehicle specific resistors for this purpose.

No different than replacing with other than LED.
