On most cars a gasket is required along with the RTV sealant. A new gasket should have come with the water pump. Ask the parts house where you purchased the part.

What do you lube the thermostat gasket with?

You do not "lube" the gasket with anything. If it is a flat paper gasket, you can use any shelac type sealer, but you don't have to as these will usually swell with contact with coolant and seal. If it is the kind that is a rubber ring around the thermostat itself, these require no sealant as pressure alone seal the housing to the motor.

Some head gaskets come with a coat of "Copper coat" sealant already on it. You can use copper coat on a head gasket safely. I prefer "Indian Head Shellac" myself.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It depends on - A) what type of engine and B) what type of gasket. Older cars mainly used cork gaskets, so gasket sealant was a wise choice. New engines use rubber, some with metal bushings or spacers, so the typical "blue glue" as daddy used to call it isn't required.

Changing the gasket itself is simple.. drain the oil, unbolt the oil pan from the bottom of the engine, use some aerosol gasket remover and remove all traces of the old gasket, slap the new gasket on with some RTV, and reattach the oil pan to the engine block. Not a whole lot to it. The trouble lies in getting to it... on a lot of cars, you'll actually have to remove the engine from the engine compartment in order to do this.
