You can learn how (not a newbie task) or hire a competent handyman to do it.
hey you! long time no chat! lol i finally got the light bulbs changed. hey I have a question about that. remember when i said I had removed the whole fixture? well there was some foam between the light fixture and the ceiling . . is that supposed to stay there? because I removed it because ai couod not see the screws to attach the fixture to the ceiling.
And thanks again for your help here too! this app is going to be my bible and new best friend with you guys here to help! woohooo!

You Bad Girl ... YES the foam is insulation to reduce heat transfer. Feel free to make the hole bigger so you can re-mount the fixture. Often, it is thin fiberglass insulation ...

Hope everything works out ... and your toilet sings on key.
