If you have any experience with soldering, or know someone who does, it'll be as easy as slicing a piece of cake. The biggest issue you'd have is being able to keep a steady hand so you don't melt the bottom of the solenoid or trigger switch.

make sure you don't accidentially solder it to the diode next to the connection either. did that on my APE ion board. took a little bit longer to fix.

grab some wires and maybe an old PC (printed circuit) board from an RC car or something and practice soldering some wires on there before you go and touch your board.

Make sure when you get a kit, the first thing you do (if not already done) is tin the soldering iron tip (cover it in the solder). Also, the easiest solder you could use is rosin core (flux is inside the wire).

Might wanna go watch some youtube videos on how to solder. I was lucky enough to have a great teacher (engineer of a dad), but it really helps to watch someone do it before you try.

Dont need to , unless off course you will start soldering other things
Just go to a Xbox or PSP or any repair center and they will solder it for ya (not sure what do people charge in the US for something like that, here in MEx is was something like a 1$)

Anyway, my 2 cents

It's usually smart to remove the existing solder, but it causes more work and can be tricky due to the small work area. If you tin the battery leads, then you should be fine just using the existing solder.
