No you don't have to remove the studs Donald you just slide the pump over those studs. Trying to remove them would likely result in them breaking anyway.
To remove the water pump you will need to have a jack and block of wood for the oil pan.
After loosening the bracket bolts, remove the bracket after lifting the engine up then remove the pump as well.
The upper cover only needs to be remove for camshaft seal replacement (which is also a good idea).
