Replace basement windows question

Hello I'm trying to get some info on if I should replace the framing around my bsmt windows while I replace the windows also. I'm installing a new bsmt bathroom and have two windows that I would like to replace cause they are old and I want sliders. I am looking for advice as to the difficulty on replacing them along with the wood framing that's around it that's getting rotted from the outside as well. Is it something a diy can do. Any information would be great and helpful. Have pics comming
Thank you

If the wood is rotted now is the time to replace.

Compared to removing steel framed windows I would think anything with wood should be simple!
