The best would be to buy the seals first and then find any round thing matching close to the outer diameter. I don't remember exactly what I use but somewhere around 30-32mm sockets. Keep in mind that the inside diameter also have to fit over the camshaft and crank journal.
Yes, when you have cleaned off surfaces on engine block and pass trough tube and fitted new o-rings. You can easily slide the thermostat in place. It's easier to install than remove but keep in mind to tighten all bolts unison so you don't apply sideways pressure on the pass through tube that makes the o-rings leak.
