Chevy S-10 driver's side door lock needs fixed

A few days ago someone decided to push the driver's side door lock into the door where it can't be accessed with the key.

What will I need to do (besides removing the interior trim) to fix this? I don't have the official shop manual that shows a breakdown of all parts and assemblies on the truck.

I'm assuming that the tumbler is inside the door. If it is, can I swap out the junkyard replacement with the tumbler set from my truck?

After finding out what's involved, I can then go ahead and look for a replacement or assembly and proceed from there. I don't want to take it apart and leave it apart if I can do it all in one operation, but if I need to open it up to see what's in there, I will.

I've never done a lock swap before, so this is new territory to me.
