well get a set of aftermarket hubs from warn there cheaper and stronger than the stock. as far as the axle shaft goes there is just a seal that holds it into the steering knuckle so you have to just pull it out. there may also be some rust making this more difficult.

yes you will need the axle seals and also hub orings and axle tube seals also. if your lucky you can get it out without ruining the seal but i would replace them otherwise you may have a vacuum leak. if you have electric shift 4x4. if its manual i would worry as much.
