I can not say if you’ll need to move the engine, but if you do, assuming the vehicle is on jack stands a block of wood and floor jack will do the trick one the motor mounts are unbolted if needed.
As to any tips …
Your up against 17 years of rust build up.
I suggest lots of penetrating oil.
A good torch
Six point sockets
Perhaps a grinder and cut off wheels
Also take your time!!! it’s too easy to strip / snap rusted fasteners.
Might also look at YT videos on how to loosen rusted exhaust fasteners.
