If the pump is not bad, there is no need to replace it. Just make darn sure that no dirt gets inside of the lines. Use a parts cleaner to clean off the line connections, before they are taken apart.

The squealing could be that you need to add power steering fluid. Also you should check the belt that operates the power steering pump, if bad replace it. If the power steering pump is full and the belt is ok, then you may need to replace the power steering pump.

You will need to remove the belt from your power steering pump. Remove the power steering hose. Remove the power steering retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new power steering pump.
