Is this something the "layman/woman" can install?
I see the part, removed the two bolts, not sure how to access the other end of the wires.
Answer You will need to unplug the stove and remove the back panel to gain access to the connector. On some models the wires are long enough to access from the inside. This is an easy repair.

I read about the igniter and began taking the bottom one out for testing but then remembered that the broiler did not light. So with both igniters not working, what may be the cause?
You will want to set the unit at bake or broil and test at the control board to make sure that there is 120 vac going to the igniter. If there is then check the wiring between the control board and igniter and between the power cord and igniter. If no power then the issue would be the control board.
My oven lights but takes time and does not maintain temp before relighting you can smell gas just before it relights could this be the igniter or is it another problem.
You will want to pull the burner and check for rusting on the burner or clogged holes in the tube. These are the most likely causes for the unit to have gas being sent but not igniting correctly.
