Valve stem seal replacement help please!!

Hey I have a 2000 Mercedes c230 kompressor and I have to change the valve stem seals because the spark plug well and the spark plugs themselves are flooded with oil. If anyone knows how to switch the valve cover gasket plus the valve stem seals I'd need some help.

If anyone has switched theirs already or just knows how to do it could you help me.
please and thank you in advance.

I'm a little confused with your question . If we call the well that the spark plug sits in as part of the exterior side of the head then the valve seals are not part of the problem. A picture or more concise explanation may elicit more responses for you.

if you plug fit down in a hole in the valve cover,then the rubber seals around the plug are bad.They are known to get dry and fail.
