Yes very easy, Just don't get the plug wires mixed up. Take it one wire at a time. Start with #1 which is listed on the cap. The rotor just pulls off and plugs back on. Twist until it goes into the slot.

as long as you are careful and remember exactly how each wire and rotor position was before you take it apart - it is a no brainer. The rotor has a small wedge/cutout that ahs to sit correctly on the shaft. The wires have to be pushed well into the ditributor - that's it.

Does the distributor on a 1994 Geo Prism have points?

The distributor on a 1994 Geo Prizm does not have points. It's got an electronic ignition system. The ignition coil and module are located inside the distributor. If you're doing any testing of the distributor, be sure to replace the spark plug wires first. Defective spark plug wires will instantly burn out the coil and in some cases, the module too.

Have often should you replace a timing belt in a 98 Chevy Prizm?

The Prizm has a timing CHAIN, not belt. The timing chain does not get replaced on a scheduled interval. It should never need to be replaced. The serpentine belt, however, does need to be replaced. Inspect the belt for cracks and glazing, and replace. It is not a difficult DIY job. It is easiest to do it from under the car, after removing the splash pan.
