Yes you can and I think it is quite easy. Look up videos on YouTube to see if there are any good tutorials. Good luck!

Adding RAM is really easy.
Don't take it apart to clean it though. My house gets very dusty and spraying the dust out with an air compressor is difficult because the ports are small located oddly.
My local Apple Certified repair center cleans it out for me every 6-8 months for free.
I popped it open myself once. It is not "user serviceable".
