We really need to know which of the three possible engines you have, but here is a rough outline:
If you have a 1.9 or a 2.0 SPI engine (not a 2.0 ZETEc)Jack up the RF corner of the vehicle and remove the RF wheel. Remove the front motor mount located on the rightfender apron and support the engine by the oil pan using a floor jack with a block of wood(You will now be able to jackthe engine up and down as you need to). Remove the serpentine belt and if there is a belt tensioner in the way of the timing cover, remove it too. Remove the crankshaft pulley and remove the timing cover. Remove the old belt, and it is recommended that you replace the water pump at this time as well. Line up the crankshft timing mark(the keyway will be pointing straight up), and line up the camshaft timing mark(an arrow cut into one of thewindows of the gear lines up witha dot on the cylinder head). Install the new belt ad reaasemble in the reverse order as disassembly.
A 2.0 ZETEC engine requires special tools as there are no timing marks of woodruff keys for the camshafts.The valve cover has to come off, and a special alignment tool used to line up the cams.The crankshaft is lined up using a special tool inserted into the engine block through a holethat is exposed when a plug is removed.

The water pump should be driven by the timing belt, yes. If you change the water pump, you might wanna change the timing belt and tensioner while you're in there.
there are two tensioners, the serpentine tensioner and the timing belt tensioner. the timing belt tensioner is behind the timing belt cover ;)
if the timing belt breaks then yes it will throw the timing off.
get a haynes or chilton manual the job is quite involved you have to remove the timing cover and belt and such. when you do the job change the timing belt since you will there anyway.
Timing BELT ( 1.8 and 1.9 liter four cylinder engines )
The water pump is inside the timing cover and is run by the timing belt. If you are going to replace it, change out the belt at the same time.
No, there are no guides and the timing is done with a belt, not a chain.

Ignition timing is not adjustable. Cam timing is adjustable by the "guess" method unless you are replacing the timing belt and using the timing marks on the belt drive cogs, in which case you need a repair manual that has detailed instructions.
About 4 hours considering if you have all the tools .
