Yes this is a complex problem however if you are comfortable with some tools here is a step by step answer for you...

Step 1) empty the storage section under the armrest - remove bottom trim plate and remove screws - Pull out cup holder insert and remove 3 screws 2 down in the middle and 1 at an angle pointing towards the dash - remove the armrest and plastic surround as one unit - note you will have to lift the parking brake lever to remove this large piece of plastic.

Step 2) remove 2 screws holding the shifter / dash trim that are now exposed, may also have screw behind ash tray - and remove shifter trim - top part is clipped and the switches are wired so be careful and rotate item out of the way - disconnection wires is not necessary.

Step 3) you now have access to the stereo mounting screws on either side of the stereo - remove them unclip the stereo and install the new wiring harness dash kit and stereo.

Step 4) put everything back together in reverse - note when putting the armrest piece back in you will need to line it up and then smack it lightly from the back to get it to pop back into place with the base of the shifter.

If not comfortable with stuff get the manual as previously suggested or take it to a professional.

The question you ask is too involved for a proper answer. You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

There is no governor to remove. Speed is controlled by the ECU (computer).

If you are asking about the radio unlock code you enter it with the radio preset buttons.

My local Honda dealer wanted $116 to remove the radio and check the serial number. (1998 Accord) I went home and removed 2 screws at the bottom of the plastic trim and pulled it out and held it up. Then I could remove the 4 screws holding the radio in place. I then pulled out the radio enough to turn it upside down and read the serial number. Call the Honda phone number on the Honda owner's website or go to the dealer for the radio code to enter using the radio pushbuttons.

The 1996 Honda Accord engine is fuel injected and has no carburetor.
