    All you probably have to do is just pull the cable from the old screen out of the motherboard and remove the screen, then install the new screen and plug it back into the motherboard, and that's pretty much it. There's probably a guide that can help you somewhere

    Most times its not soldered in, so you could just clip in the new one, but i've never worked with a GBA screen, just GBC, but they should be similar

    it should be a little clip that you flip up on the motherboard and you can just slide the cable out, then you can remove the old screen, install the new screen, and plug the cable into the board

    I'm not sure on that one, not many game stores do stuff like that.

    It's your choice really. If you can do some soldering, it doesn't seem that hard to install, but it'd be way easier to just clip on a light thing and be done with it
