Whatever the reason for replacing your existing sink, it’s a job that’s certainly within the capability of experienced DIYers, especially those who have undertaken some plumbing work previously.
If you’ve never installed a sink before, it’s a good idea to read up on what’s involved before you decide whether to do the job yourself or hire a contractor. The book I recommend is Black & Decker’s Complete Guide to Plumbing (ISBN: 978-1591866367). The websites of home improvement centres and sink manufacturers are also good places to look for installation guides.
