Get a 9007 hi/lo lamp at the parts store. Access from the engine compartment. Behind the headlamp, turn the beige cup sized cover toward you (off). You do not need to unhook the wires at this point. Move this to the side (it is a tight fit), reach in and get hold of the next o type ring (black), and turn toward you. Pull out the bulb and unhook the wiring. Install new bulb, making sure the o ring is set right. It takes me a couple of tries to get the bulb and o ring back together just right.

No, 98-02 have different mounting, you can use 91-96.

I don't know the whole procedure but I do know that the bumper cover has to be removed in order to get the headlights out.
