It's not recommended to change just the lifters. The cam and lifters should be replaced together. To get at the lifters, you can remove the rocker covers and intake manifold, loosen the rockers enough to get the pushrods out, then pull out the lifters.

Can you change the rod bearings without pulling out the motor?

Sometimes it's possible to change the big end bearings by pulling the sump off. But to get to the small end you need to get the pistons out. And if you're pulling the sump, and the head(s) you might as well get the motor out first as it'll probably be faster.

Do you need new hydraulic roller lifters if you have a new cam?

Officially you should change lifters anytime you change the cam. In real world use; unless the roller lifters have obvious, visual damage, missing pins, wear on surface of the roller, then it is not normally going to be a problem. In the case of flat lifters, you should change them. The cam of flat tappet (regular) lifters, have a slight bevel to the surface of the cam. When the cam and lifter are in operation - this causes the lifters to rotate in their bore. After/during break-in, there is some wear on both surfaces and they end up with a pattern which is unique for each bore and and each cam/lifter combination. If you change either the order of the lifters on the original cam they meshed with, or install a new cam or new lifters - there is a very real chance of accelerated wear leading to failure of cam and lifter. What is worse - the resulting debris can follow the oil and ruin bearing surfaces throughout the engine. Your money, your choice.

There is no adjustment for hydraulic valve lifters. Lifters can be noisy on some of these models. After ascertaining there is no mechanical damage/broken parts, change engine oil and add 1/2 bottle of STP Oil Treatment (or more if necessary) until lifters are quieter.
