It really is not hard if it is the same as a 1994! I've had to change mine twice! All you do is unscrew the brake lines from the Master Cylinder, unplug the two sets of wires that are underneath the lines. Then unbolt the two bolts that are under the brake fluid reservoir. The unit should lift right up and off! Easy as 1-2-3!!

There are two reasons for this. The first is the break calibers need bled and the second is the breaks themselves need adjusted back.

Not completely. Most places will just replace the cylinder or the rubber seal. But that's assuming that's the only problem

Start the car. Place you foot on the brake and hold steady pressure. If the brake pedal slowly moves toward the floor, you need to replace the master cylinder.

The Slave Cylinder and the Master Cylinder control totally different systems. The Slave has to do with the clutch, and the Master has to do with the brakes. They have nothing in common.
