(a) Should be.
(b) Define "easy". I'd say it is. According to the hardware maintenance
manual (https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/t450s_hmm_en_sp40g54937_01.pdf)
it's under the base cover (see page 67), which I'd say you need to learn
to open anyway, as there's also the hard drive and RAM there :) Now if
for some reason the antenna cables aren't there, things will get a lot

As far as I understand you can't just insert any wireless card in
thinkpads, the BIOS checks if it's an "authorized" one. You can find the
supported ones in
(right at the end). Assuming you want an 802.11ac card (why go for an
older one?) it seems you want 00JT464 or 00JT467 (not sure what the
difference is)

Have fun!

"Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are,
by definition, not smart enough to debug it." - Brian W. Kernighan
