Most likely it is pretty straightforward, like swap the bearings.
When you pull the wheel check them for any roughness, if any at all, discard; if none you may opt to pull the inner shield and clean/relube them. The part number may be a guide to the bearing dimensions; ie, inner hole (axle) dia. (ID), outside dia. (OD) and thickness. If the part number isnt the clue the bearings have such right on them. You can compare bearing numbers to see if all the diff is happens to be is the ID (check and see if you have an industrial bearing house locally, they can often help).
Also, take the inner spacer tube and lay it through the new wheel hub, sans bearings, and see if it is at least as long as the bearing journals (the cut the bearings sit into) is wide side to side. What that spacer does is keep a distance between the bearings when you tighten the axle so you dont load the bearings with a side thrust. Thus that spacer needs to be at the very least as long, or only a smidge longer than the bottom end of those bearing journals.
