Default Binding Caliper, I think

Car is a 2000 OBS, all stock.
I think I've got a caliper hanging. . .looking for advice on how to go about clearing it up. . .and confirmation of the diagnosis.
So I'm periodically getting a hellish vibration over 50mph, high-pitched squeal noticeable at low speeds. If I stomp on the brakes at speed, it'll go away for a while, but usually comes back. . .often accompanied by an awesome burned stink. Driver's side wheel is untouchable hot for about 15 minutes after driving, passenger side is warm (at most).
So my questions:
1.Can this be repaired/rebuilt, or should I just bite the bullet and get a new caliper (if I need a new caliper, should I do the pair to keep them matched?)
2. (I think I can guess the answer on this one) Should I be on the motorcycle until I can find the time to do this?
3. From the heat generated, what are the chances I've already cooked something in there?

Thanks in advance. . .
