Yes, it can be very easy. Though, you'll want the system off and cooled-down. Then, you can either drain the system down to that radiator or just put down a lot of towels. Then, it's simply unscrew the radiator from the pipes and screw the new one in. Re-fill the system and bleed everything. This simplicity can become a nightmare if rust has locked connections or spuds break off or the new radiator has different size connections. I feel you'll be fine.
