How old is old to you, if it's over 20 years then replace the whole thing.
There called washers not rubbers.
Do not buy some cheap store brand! If you do the chrome on the plastic will peel and it will start leaking agin in a few years. Look for Moen, American Standard, Kohler.
You going to have to have an access hole in the wall behind it to get it out.

That would depend on what kind of valve you have...

As for the age I often fix faucets that are 20 years old and often much older than that! It depends on the faucet quality and your water conditions...

Can you post a picture of the valve?

The picture isnt showing but if the tub and shower is on at same time then central diverter stem is no good.
This is a blind reply

I saw a couple of pictures showing the tub but not the faucet...
So we could use a little more information...
