I used 4 jackstands and got the whole car up as high as possible (like cheech and chong) and made a sort of cradle for my jack to handle the tranny, I would not recommend doing this yourself, at least physically removing the tranny and reinstalling it, its very heavy, around 120lbs iirc, and can hurt you very bad or kill you. There rest of the job is a one man deal and pretty straightforward. I don't think its even possible to get an impact of the driveshaft bolts, you need to use a box-end wrench and some locktite.
Adjusting the clutch is very easy, you want about 1/4" gap between the throwout bearing and the pressure plate, if you have a firewall adjuster its cake, just pull on the cable with about 20lbs force and tighten the adjuster until you can just fit a dime between the adjusting wheel and base.
