No "special" tools needed except hog ring pliers and some hog rings..., and you can indeed swap just the cloth upholstery if you're careful.
The best instructions I know of is Mr. Mikes video for installing his leather seats, the only difference is that you won't be cutting the old covers off like he shows but you'll be doing everything else virtually the same, including removing and reinstalling those dang "listing rods".....(You'll discover what those are....)
You should also take the opportunity to repair / replace the foam while you have the cloth off.
I would suggest you get in touch with Mr. Mike and see if you can buy just the video, pliers, hog rings, foam and adhesive from him.
Depending on cost it could be well worth it.

I also recommend Mr Mikes. After cutting all the hog rings, Fiero seats have metal bars that hold the 'tucks' deep down in the creases. I think I remember 2 on each top and each bottom cushion about 4" in from the sides.
