valve cover gasket replacment

I think what i need is to replace my valve cover gasket (the one facing the front of the car). I have the oil on the bolts on the bottom there, and after the car is warmed up or i come off the highway, i smell the oil burning. last time i changed my oil, i was short 2 quarts. I looked a bit online, but would this be something you can do yourself and what would i need beside the tools, new gasket, sealer/adhesive? thanks for any info.

**i just looked on a website, and according to the picture, this is the cylinder head side cover which would make it the o-ring which is maybe just another name for the same thing?

it is an o-ring style gasket. the cover comes off easy enough. It is just bolted on, and then you can replace the seal. It is a cheap fix. under $15 from the honda dealer. I will been doing mine during my next oil change.
