How easy is it to change my rear pads on a 93 325?

It's pretty easy, but the first time is alwasy the hardest.

What are the best pads to get?

Not too sure, for street/track application, carbotech (www.carbotecheng.com) makes some very nice crossover pads.

What tools do I need?

You will need:
1 - Torque wrench
1 - 17mm? socket
1 - 7mm hex driver
1 - wire hanger (to hang your caliper on)
1 - piston spreader (cost maybe $10)
2 - flat head screwdrivers (to remove the clip)
and I think that's about it.

How long will it take me?

About 1 hour first time, ~20 minutes second.

How long do I have to change them after my sensor goes off before I screw something up?

Not too sure.

Here is a great link to help you out:
