You have to order the gaskets, seals, etc. separately. Not too bad, all of the sites have exploded drawings with the part numbers. My personal favorite is cheapcycleparts.com.
Once everything is disconnected from the engine and the right side frame section is removed, lowering and moving the engine to the right at the same time it will come right out. It is heavy so use a jack or friend. The shifter is going to be your only issue, getting it past the left side frame rail.
Boy, without knowing what shape your engine is in makes it very difficult to suggest what to replace. The oil leak in the rear head could be the external oil line, a head or cylinder base gasket. The knock in front can be several things. You are going to have to do an exploratory to determine what needs fixing/replacing. If it has 10K miles or more, or is > 5 years old, I would definitely replace all the dampeners as they are known to fail. Perhaps the impeller seal on the waterpump shaft too.
