Do I need thermal grease when replacing the left fan? And where?

Your guide for replacement looks like even I can follow it...but I didn't see anything about the grease that seems to be included with purchase on most of the left fan replacements I'm looking at. Do I need it? And how much? And where?

Thermal paste is usually only used between the heat sink and the CPU and GPU. You should not need it when replacing a fan unless the process involves removal of the logic board.
