Do it from the top. Approach from the passenger side. If you were inside the car you it would be in the right rear engine area. Use a 3/8 ratchet with an oil cup with no extension. The filter will drain over exhaust manifold so expect oil burn for a few days.

Where is the orifice filter located on a 1998 Chevy Cavalier?

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier 2.2 L and for me the orifice filter for AC is located down to the left of the radiator on the front of the car. If you look where your high pressure valve is just below that and to the left a little you will see two aluminum pipes (one coming from the top one from the bottom) and where they meet is where the orifice filter is housed, it looks sort of like a small aluminum rectangle. Just take the nuts off the housing for it and there you have it.
