Rear Caliper Replacment Help

Hello everyone,

I've decided to undertake a brake job myself under the pretense of saving myself a load of money. However, I've never touched my brakes before and therefore have had several questions spring to mind over the past few days with the regardless to replacing my rear driverside brake caliper. The two that have me most perplexed are the following:

Is it difficult, and not recommended, to tackle the disassembly and reassembly of my e-brake mechanism? I can only find one video on youtube that mentions this step but it does not provide any insight as to how it is to be done.

And two, when I remove the brake hose, will I be leaking brake fluid everywhere? And do I bleed immediately after the job?

I'm not the most mechanically inclined individual but would really like to do this job myself.

Thanks
