Jack up car, secure on jackstand, Remove wheel, remove two mounting bolts that secure the calipers. Slide calipers out of rotors and hang caliper in a way not to strain brake hose. Pull Rotors off and change for new ones. If you want to change pads, Remove two retaining bolts on the caliper that hold the pads, remove and replace them.

Depends on what you mean by best. Disc brakes tend to offer the most braking power for a given amount of force applied at the lever. But a disc brake setup is heavier and has poorer aerodynamics than caliper brakes. And disc brakes wear faster than drum brakes, roller brakes and band brakes. Disc brakes are not as well sealed as drums or rollers, so performance will still be slightly weather dependent.
