Yup it's relatively easy. When you order the replacement it's basically the entire trackball unit and maybe the chrome bezel as well. The bezel is held down by three prongs (located at 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions). You want to gently pry it off at the 12O'clock position. Once removed, you can just remove the trackball unit, pop the new one in and put the bezel back in place.
