Question Package a/c unit install

I now have a package unit on my home, don't like the large shoot on the side, but oh was like this when I bought the house a year ago.

Now the 9 y/o carrier unit is on its way is a package 3 ton with heat pump.

thinking about installing a package unit myself in its place. Will need to know:

1. what I currently have and what I can replace it with
2. any tips or cautions prior to install.

as I see it, all I need to do is cut the power....................disconnect the electrical and thermostat wires.................disconnect the duct work in the back of unit and

connect the new unit? Please offer comments and help the guy across the street offered to help, his is a master mechanic a/c certified in cars, but has had experience with his friends dad installing units.............he installed his split unit.............I will pay him of course

Is the unit still running? Is it cooling properly? I wouldn't replace a 9 year old unit unless you had a compressor burn out or it got hit by a truck. There is still some life left in that unit.
