You drain coolant, mark and remove all hoses.

Remove 8 bolts or so for intake.

Pry intake back one inch or so, so just over studs.

Scrape the old intake gasket off.

Slip new intake gasket on.

Tighten and torque the bolts.

Add coolant, that was drained off.

Verify the fix by checking engine vacuum at idle...15PSI, and steady.

Can a bad head gasket cause coolant to go inside intake manifold?

No, the head gasket is underneath the heads where they mount onto the block. Your intake manifold is bolted to the top of your heads. Some motors have coolant that circulates in the intake manifold ( I don't know what year or make your vehicle is ) so I would check my shop or repair manual. There could be a crack where the coolant flows through your intake manifold or one of the manifold gaskets may need replacing.
