It depends on which pulley has broken, there is two attached to the crankshaft. One is the main toothed pulley that is part of the engine timing. The other is just a normal flat pulley that spins your auxillary belt.

Depends on which one has broken to the importance of it needing changing. If it the timing pulley, then do it now. If it is the aux pulley, then do it as soon as you can.
Yup, and its a pain in teh ass tryign to hold the fly wheel to stop it turning, when i removed the last one, i just used an impact gun on it, prolly not the best choice of tools, but the bottem end had a nasty oil leak, and i didn't car about it anyways
