Yes, you have to remove the intake plenum, along with the valve cover gasket, it is a good idea to replace the spark plug tube seals, intake plenum gasket and the pcv valve and grommet. Once you get the intake plenum, and egr pipe removed all that is left is to move the wiring harness out of the way(kind of a pain) and remove the bolts that hold on the valve cover.

You said you had read some threads on how to change the Valve Cover Gaskets. Here's some more for you to read in case you missed them.

Here is Pmesfun's epic thread. It's 12 pages long, but you should read the entire thread.
