Its not too hard...

You pretty much have to pull the spindle off the car...you could probably do it on the car but removing it will make it a lot easier. Once its off you have to remove the snap ring with a pair of snap ring pliers, then drive the old bearing out with a piece of pipe or old socket slightly smaller than the outside race. Installing the new one is essentially reverse...be very careful to only pound on the outside race when installing the new bearing, otherwise you could damage it before it even gets installed. Alternately, you could remove the spindle and find a machine or automotive shop with a hydraulic press and have them do it...when I had to replace my passenger-side bearing a local auto shop did it for $25 (or so...can't recall off the top of my head) while I waited.

I wouldn't drive it much...eventually the bearing is going to sieze and since its on your drive wheel it's not going to be good for the transmission to be sending power to a frozen wheel.

I spun a rear wheel bearing on a volkswagen i had once.. it was some nasty damage.
the whole wheel fell off the spindle in the middle of the road cause the bearing wasn't holding it on anymore hah!

Yes I would refrain from driving it
