Not trying to be a d*ck really.... but if you need to ask that question you should be looking for a mechanic right about now. No harm intended, best advice I can give.

However... if you want to learn. Best tool is the FSM and it will outline all the required tools for the job.

I tore one apart when my first one died at 40k miles. It's like a swiss watch in there, good luck buddy.

If you had mentioned which trans you have, some people could point you in the right direction. Like to an ax-15 rebuild write up on here...
But the fsm tells you exactly what you need and how to do it with clear illustrations. Buy the fsm

Looking back at OP's previous threads, I would say, AX-15 manual.
