If the boots are torn, nothing really other then replace boots or replace the Tie Rod Ends. Do they still take grease and seem to be lubricated??? If so then probably will be fine with routine greasing, otherwise can replace a couple of them at a time. You should be able to get the boots at any local auto store.

Don't worry about the holes or grease leaking out of the boots, just keep the zerks greased and everything will be fine.

I don't think you can just replace the boots as they come with the ball joints. Just keep them greased up at each oil change and everything will be fine.

You still have to remove the Steering Knuckle in order to replace.
Depends on if you ever did them before.

Any auto store should be able to carry or have them as well.
Like mentioned, just routine grease them 3-5k miles and you should be fine
