Exclamation New Disc Brakes - putting on?

Hi everyone!
I just bought 2 new brake disks and was wondering how to put them on? is it an easy job or should I get a mechanic to do it? and which two wheels should I put them on (Front/Back)? Apparently the front brakes wear out quicker than the back ones?

The front and back are differnt sizes! Which ones did you buy?
For either front or back the calipers have to come off, if you are not a mech I'd get someone to do it as the bolts are tight, need a socket wrench and should be replaced each time.
