Megane II (2005) Front discs & Pads replacement?

Hello everybody peeps,

Newbie here...very confused and hoping you can help please.

Need to replace front discs & pads for the MOT and want to do them myself with an engineer friend.
But there seems to be a bit of confusion about:

1) Bleeding the system

2) Releasing the handbrake cable adjustment etc.

Obviously I would open the master cylinder, unscrewing the cap but do i also need to open the bleed screw to retract the calliper piston?

Where is the bleed screw located?

Do i also need to release the handbrake cable adjustment and disconnect the cable ends from the calliper?

Finally, i keep seeing 'Copper Grease' mentioned - What & Where is this used? (Only clean,printable answers please )

All answers gratefully received...ta
