Default Change Brake pads

Alright here's the deal. I got a 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 I need new brake pads and i would like to know how to change it out myself rather than paying for someone to do it since im a little low in the money department right now. Can you guys help me out? Also if i need new rotors what do i have to do to to get them replaced? Send them to a machine shop to take the grooves out or just buy new?

All depends how worn the rotors are. They may not look bad, but I would take them to autozone or another auto shop and have them measure them. If they are to thin you have to buy new.
