help ASAP please!! replacing wheel stud on WRX

I have a 2002 Impreza WRX Wagon, and it actually broke a wheel stud in an accident with a curb that ended up beending the rim, and a CV joint and axle shaft had to be replaced.
the Dealership wants 400$ just to replace the wheel stud that was broken. I was wondering if this is as simple as removing the brake rotor, and hammering the stud into place, or does it require a sepcial tool or press to install the new wheel stud??
I have a 1992 Toyota 4x4, and replacing teh stud was involved, but once I had the brake rotor off, i just had to hammer the new stud into the hole and it was all set from there
Please help asap, i have to do this tomorrow morning if at all possible
