Both shifters and new cables and cable housing are included. Provided you have a decent cable cutter, these are all easy to install. If you are replacing grip shifters, you should also get new handlebar grips (usually 13cm but do check yourself!). I highly recommend them.
Getting it installed is absolute child's play, but just remember you'll need a rear derailleur (gear changer on the back axle) that is compatible with Shimano's SIS system (most are, but worth checking first). Also remember you'll need to do some adjustment on the derailleur once you've connected and tightened the new shifter cable, so you'll need a basic understanding of what to do. As usual, YouTube helps.
Now for usage. Moving from 1st gear (easy) to 6th (hard) is so easy, just a simple push on the button to swap to the near gear. Dead easy. Moving from 6th back up to 1st just involves pushing the lever up in successive steps. It requires a little more force to move from 3rd to 2nd and from 2nd to 1st, but it's still a lot easier than the twist grip shifter that you're probably replacing.
Overall, works very well once all adjusted.
