Remove the retaining nut while holding the driveshaft with a strap wrench, then remove the metal strap that holds the rubber isolator. most of the time you will have to have the old bearing pressed off. then tap the new one on like you do a wheel bearing.

Go to a machine shop pay a guy 10 bucks on his lunch to press the old one off and press the old one on. You don't want to cut it off especially with a torch. You might be able to with a die-grinder. But I would pay to have it pressed off and on. Alot cheaper then a new driveshaft if you damage the driveshaft during the attempt to cut off the old bearing.
