In answer to your question about the oil seal, Yes, you can unscrew the
nut, remove the yoke, replace the seal, and replace the nut. But..... You
will need an impact wrench to take the nut off, (most likely), It should
be torqued back on to approximately 120 ft. lbs.
You can make a tool to hold the yoke while you tighten the pinion nut by
taking a piece of angle iron, cut a curve in it to fit the round shape of
the yoke, drill two holes in it, and bolt it to the yoke. Bolt it to 
where the driveshaft bolts would go. This will give you the leverage you
need to tighten the nut.

Good luck.....
