    It's replaced by turning off the power at the fusebox/consumer unit, removing what is there and fitting a normal pendant set.

    Whether you require an electrician or can do it yourself depends on your abilities.
    In terms of electrical work it's a fairly easy thing to do.

    I think that is wise.

    The fact that you have asked shows, at the very least, that you don't have the tools or equipment.

    There may be three or more cables - nine or more wires above to reconnect.
