Easy to put cat on before mot?

Hey guys I was wondering how easy it is to put the standard exhaust back on to the car just before mot because I'm looking to get a new full decat exhaust but wanna no if I'd have to take it to a garage to change back to the original exhaust or if it's A pretty simple job. I think I have 2cats on my gx. And I think it's time to change that also if I get a cat-back and then buy a separate decat pipe would they fit Ie are they all one diameter size for a nonturbo?
Alotof questions I no but better to ask
Thanks Ben

People have gained over 20bhp from full exhaust and manifold and that was a accord type r which has a ss system already so logic would state that more are achievable from mine.
