It is easy. It's the same thing as a laptop. I only opened Dell laptops to see how to insert it into slot, but I think most are the same. You slide it a bit and it will pop out. Then you insert it in and you press it down and push it.

And I actually have 2 different memories running on my Dell laptop. It automatically detects the weaker link, for me that is.

Depending on your laptop, is usually under a panel on the backside which has a screw or two. It could also be under your keyboard, just depending on the model. As for taking them out, it is fairly easy. There is a clamp on each side of the ram which you will have to push out at the same time. The ram then pops up and you can now pull it out. To install them, you slide the ram carefully at an angle then press down and the clamps should click back into place securing the ram module.
