First off, wrong section, should be in the 92-99 section. The wheel bearing is not * serviceable part. It is a sealed unit. I don't think it is that hard to change though. I have had 3 changed on my 03 Malibu and it was pretty simple.

It is held on by three bolts. You'll need a 34 or 36mm for the axle nut and a T55(I think) Torx. It'* pretty easy.

Definately a bearing, just make darn sure you're replacing the correct one.
