Replacing brake pads is easy. Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the caliper/brake shoe, and remove the old brake pad. Put in the new brake pad, replace the caliper/brake shoe, replace the tire and lower the car to the ground.
Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/caliper, and remove and properly dispose of the old brake pad. Put in a new brake pad, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire, tighten the nuts, lower the vehicle to the ground.
You jack up and block the car. Remove wheel, remove brake caliper. Rotor is now free.
When replacing brake lines, wheel cylinders or calipers air will get into the lines because they were taken apart. Usually air gets into the lines before you work on it because the master cylinder got too low on brake fluid letting air into the lines. Also a bad seal on a caliper piston and a brake wheel cylinder will allow air into the lines.
Remove wheel, remove caliper from mount, not from the brake line or the cable, get proper tool for working on rear disk brakes then twist the piston and compress it back into the caliper, install in reverse order.

Low tire pressure? Frozen brake caliper?
Whoever replaced your pads may have neglected to apply anti squeal goop to the back of the new brake pads. Brake pads should have some greasy stuff smeared on their surfaces where they meet the caliper, the caliper piston, and at the ends where they fit into the caliper. The squeal is caused by high frequency vibration where the back of the pad presses against the caliper and caliper piston(s).
Lift the car, remove the tires, remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the old brake pad. Put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/caliper, replace the tire and lower the car.
