i just replaced mine a couple weeks ago and for someone who has never done it before it was quit simple, remove your wheel, remove caliper by loosening the bolts ( make sure you dont completely disconnect the caliper just loosen enough to release it from rotor) once u get caliper off its very simple since brake pads just slide on and off pull off old brake pads and replace with new ones, be sure to check pads for L and R on them so u know u are putting correct pads on the correct sides and then reconnect everything and bleed Your brakes to release any air bubbles that may be in the line that will cause brake problems.....

Do you have to replace the back brake shoes if you change front pads?

No. You will only need to replace the brake shoes if they are worn down. Generally the front brakes do 70% of braking leaving the rear with 30%, which will cause the front pads to wear first. What is important however is that you replace either front brakes or rear brakes as a set. i.e. if you're replacing the front brakes do the right and left side.
