Pretty standard. Put car in park (or in gear if manual transmission) and apply emergency brake. Make sure you're on A) level ground, and B) stable ground (not soft dirt!). If the jack shifts, your truck falls! Check you have the jack (scissor jack with tire iron etc in rear interior side panel of Pathfinder). Unzip the spare tire cover on rear of vehicle, make sure it has enough air in it. While truck is still on the ground, LOOSEN the lugnuts with the tire iron (just loosen--do not come close to removing them yet!). This is the hard part, so you don't want the car jacked up at this point while you're pulling on the tire iron! To be supersafe, put some kind of block on the opposite wheel so it doesn't roll. If you're changing FRONT LEFT wheel, use something to block the RIGHT REAR wheel. Again, this is just the supersafe way to do it. Now get the scissor jack ready. There are 4 jack points under your car (usually right by the wheel, closer to the middle of the car, they are NOT toward the front or back!). Raise it up by turning the scissor jack. When the tire is all the way off the ground, remove the lugnuts the rest of the way. Place them someplace safe. Remove the flat tire. Now place the spare on the lugbolts (use your foot to help align it). Hand tighten the lugnuts back on as best you can. Now lower the jack. When the truck's back on the ground, TIGHTEN the lugs hard with the tire iron. Now take your flat tire in and get it patched or replaced. Don't drive without a spare!

The quick answer is no. Off the top of my head the reason is this. The bolt pattern from the Pathfinder is probably not the same as the Suburban. And the tires on the Pathfinder are probably not rate high enough to carry the weight of the suburban safely.
