It's easy. Having a repair manual like a Haynes would make it even easier, simply because of the pictures, but I'll try and describe it.

First, disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, followed by any electrical connections between the alternator and everything else. Now, when you're looking at the alternator from the front of the car, at the very bottom is an adjustment bolt for the belt...loosen that so that there is a bit of slack on the belt. On the side of the alternator (I don't remember which side, sorry) are two bolts...simply undo those and it'll come right out. Installation is the reverse of removal, but make sure you tighten the belt to the specified tension.

if you replace the alternator will you also be replacing the voltage regulator

It all depends on what is wrong with it but most of the time you have to tear it apart to replace parts in it and if you have never done it your better off just buying a new one.

The voltage regulator is an integral part of the alternator. I would recomend replacing the alternator.

There are two bolts on the bottom of the alternator that you can't see but you can feel them, these are the pivot bolts, remove them. Then remove the adjustment bolt on top of the alternator. Remove wiring from back of alternator. Reverse instructions for install.

Your alternator has failed, and the battery has drained from running the vehicle without being able to recharge it. Replace the alternator and the battery should be fine.
