Is there anything I should know before ordering a bunch of replacement capacitors?

Like they need to have weird tolerances, normal uF caps don't fit where they should in the psu, stock components generate too much heat, etc ?

Also should I be ok with any type of solder, and a 40w iron?

Just match the component values, and select good quality replacements, rather than the cheapest.

Again, a good quality solder and decent 40W Iron should be fine - get some desoldering braid while you're at it.

Mouser, RS and Farnell (can't remember what it's called in the US), should give you the specs on the website in terms of dimensions of components so you can get like for like replacements which fit properly.
