Ac compressor install

So the previous owner had a mechanic put on an ac bypass pulley bc the compressor seized up, but with this being my daily driver and having to drive it 240 miles a week I want ac. What I'm wondering is if anyone has replaced theirs before and what all it requires.

New or rebuilt compressor with proper amount of oil.
New receiver drier.
Vacuum pump to evacuate the system and remove any moisture.
If the system has been open to the atmosphere, the vacuum pump will need to run for quite awhile to remove the moisture.
Proper refrigerant charge.
