I regularly google for self-help youtube videos. I just watched video #1 and it is the best instructional video that I have ever seen. I has everything you need to know and nothing extra. Granted, it's a pretty simple task, but the video made it so easy to follow along. I wish all videos were like this. Thanks.

You don't need to use a screw driver with this type of fob as the end of the metal key has a flat edge which is ideal for popping off the cover!

Will the key need to be programmed again for the car?

It should work without having to do anything special (other than replace the battery).
