Front Door 4" speaker replacement help

I recently purchased a 2011 X5 35d, base model. The speakers in both front doors need to be replaced. The information regarding matching the ohms of aftermarket speakers with the impedance of the OEM amp is kinda confusing to me. What is the simplest way to replace the speakers with higher quality after market components?

Also, how hard are the door panels to remove? I wont be doing the install myself, and there are not many car audio places to choose from where I live so I'm a little nervous handing the car over to these guys.

Last question: is there any easy fix to the buzzing/rattling sound that comes from the dash near the climate control knobs? It typically only makes the noise when i'm idling or in traffic, and the noise goes away when i firmly press the dash with my hand but returns as soon as i take my hand away.

THANKS!!

i have no idea about the dash. as for the doors, they are pretty easy. personally i would never trust an installer. they will likely just rip the door off, break half the clips, and slap it back on. just watch the youtube videos of people who really think they know what they are doing (but don't). i'd do it yourself. as for the speakers, does the 2011 X5d have the same crappy base system as the 2011 x35i that I have.. with the tweeter sails but no tweeters? if so, i can tell you what I would do.
