Its tough, but I cut the old factory ball joint in half to get the lower half out of the control arm and the upper half cut and air hammered off the knuckle arm. The replacement did not involve any rivits, just nuts and bolts.
The tools needed are a air hammer gun, air gun, a cut off disc tool(grinding disc), a pry bar, wratchet and various sockets for installation of new ball joint.

You can not just change the ball joint , you have to replace the whole lower control arm with ball joint.

If you mean the lower suspension arm (wishbone) ball joint, it is fixed into the arm. This means you need to replace the whole lower arm.
it has to be pressed out and back in
Since it's the lower, I think you can replace just the ball joint. Most of the time the uppers are replaced by replacing the entire arm.
