You must use a proper wattage soldering gun to do the job. It's not easy if you never did any. Steady hands, proper heat and proper soldering lead is required. Un-solder requires steady hands, proper heat and unsoldering tools (i use small flat head screw driver to lift up the "leg" from solder pad), i would pre-solder a small amount of fresh lead. The heatsink cools down your solder very fast, so I would say unsoldering job is more difficult to do for inexperience DIYer.
