  1. You are going to have a tough time if this is your first time soldering. If you have a cheap radio or something tear it apart and practice on it. When you solder make sure your tip is hot enough to melt the solder before you start. Keep a wet sponge nearby and clean your tip with that. You'll have to tin the tip before you start (puting solder on the tip). When you tin the tip don't put to much solder on it. Never leave the soldering Iron on a chip for more than 2 or 3 seconds, you'll burn the chip up. I'd leave the solder on the board that's already there or else it'll be impossible to do. I haven't soldered anything in about 2 years so I might be a little rusty, but this should be a good start.

  3. There's not really anyway. Just make sure and use a big magnifying glass when you solder. That way you can make sure you know what leads are being soldered and that none of them get shorted together. Just practice enough so that you can get the leads soldered in under 4 secs. Try puting something on the chip as a heat sink to take away excess heat also. That's about all I can tell you.
