Screen replacement only for iPhone 5

I have an iphone 5 at&t. could you tell me if you have a video or tuorial showing how to correctly replace the outer screen? The phone is 100% functional, is just a cracked screen the only part I need to replace? How difficult is this repair? 1-10 with 1 being easy. I have replaced the lcd touch screen & diditizer on a iphone 4s multipule times correctly. It was easy to me. Is the LCD and Digitizer fused together?
