mgf vvc head gasket replacement

My '98 VVC headgasket blew yesterday and I am considering a DIY replacement and would be grateful if anybody could answer the following.

1 Is there a definitive set of instructions listed anywhere?
2 Are special tools needed and are they available?
3 Much reading also suggests perhaps replacing the oil rail. Is this necessary and is it possible without taking the engine out.
4 There was no indication of overheating just some other symptoms over a few days that have ended in the failure. So, is it essntila to have the head skimmed. I understand that if so, removel of the VVC gear is very very tricky???
5 Anybody out there done it themselves?

Any other guidance and advice will be greatly appreciated
