the rocker cover is probably held in place with around 8 bolts or so. the gasket should be cheap, a local motor factors should be able to supply you with one. just make sure you dont let any dirt get inside the engine once you remove the cover.

Its just 4 screws. One at each corner. Torx 30 a think. You will need to remove the spark plug leads to get access to the one on the left at the back. The gasket might be 'baked on' to the cover. Make sure you scrape it all off or you wont get a good seal when you replace the gasket
