It depends on how good you can solder and how good your tools are.
But it shouldn't be to difficult tho.
Reading through the adafruit guide it sounds pretty hard work, Adafruit have since started stocking a solder removal alloy which might make the job easier, basically a low melting point solder which you use to dilute the solder on the board.
If you want a minimum profile device then an A+ with the Pi screen might be OK, I'm just conscious that you will want some connectivity (keyboard, mouse, WIFI, bluetooth, storage media, etc) so again a USB hub + dongles would be needed.
The official Pi screen connects to the display interface (not available on the Pi0) through a small interface board (supplied with the screen).
