I'm not familiar with the dakota, but based on the ones I have done; You'll need a ball joint press, which is basically a large c-clamp with special cups to press out and then press in the new joints. Many auto parts stores will lend these out, and will show you how to use it. With this tool, 10 minutes per side installing new ball joints. You most likely need a new alignment afterwards.

What is the difference between a 2 joint shaft and a 3 joint shaft for a 1996 Dodge Dakota?

The joint you are looking for is the U joint. You have one at the back of the transmission and another where the drive shaft attaches to the rear end. On the extended version there will also be a U joint in the middle. So if you look under the car and the drive shaft just looks like one long tube you have a two joint shaft. If however, you see what appears to be a joint about the size of both of your fists together in the middle of the shaft, you are looking at the third joint.
