My heater core went out in my 95 Thunderbird about 3 months ago. Unless you know a ton about cars, you're gonna have to take it to a mechanic. It will be anywhere from $400-$800 to get it put in. Sucks since it's a 20 dollar part. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

Just replaced the heater core in my 95 t-bird..used Haynes manual and what it didn't say was that you have to take the entire dash off. no problem after that.A shop manual from DISCOUNTAUTOREPAIRMANUALS.COM probably will be more specific than yours. It is a big job though

You most take the whole dash board out. Is not easy but it can be done it took me about two to do it but I did it and I'm glad i did.
It depends what you define as easy, i changed one in a 1994 Chevy van and it was a pain in the ***. I don't know about ford but in the one i changed it had to come out from under the dash then I had to take the plastic casing off and it came right out. If you don't need the heater i would just by pass the heater core. All you have to do it take the hoses off the heater core and connect them together. That's way easier then replacing it. hope this helps.
