How to change front brakes on 1990 Ford Aerostar?

Can anyone suggest a step by step page how to change the front brakes on a 1990 Ford Aerostar? It doesn't look like they bolt on at all, but there are some pin looking things. Do they have to be replaced each time? I hate to think some lame looking things like that are all that's holding the brakes on. Do they require a special tool? They look like they could give a hard time trying to get them back in. I'm no mechanic, so something weird looking like that makes me nervous...afraid I can get them off but won't be able to get them back on if they bur up or bend or something. Other than the shoes themselves, does anything else need to be replaced?

If you are not confident on doing brakes , best to leave alone .Could end up more expensive in the long run and you cant take a chance on brakes .
