to get them out, a drift and a hammer from the opposite side is the way to do it

The seals are rubber, and the lips wear allowing moisture in and the grease out
If they are fine, with no play then don't disturb them
If they worn then they need replacing
you should always apply grease to the axle - it stops the axle rusting to the bearings

The bearings on the front wheel of my 07 are not sealed bearings, but you could put sealed ones in. I just had the back off but didn't pay attention to them.
