Answers :

You do not have to bleed them at all. Remove the cap off the master cylinder and you can then compress the caliber to remove the old pads and install new ones. No need to belled unless you replace the master cylinder or a caliber.
Unless something happened to get air into the system, bleeding the brakes is not required and is not part of a normal brake job. You are correct in that when you compress the caliper piston it will displace fluid, but it will simply push it back into the master cylinder reservoir. The only thing you need to watch is that it doesn't overflow, as brake fluid is corrosive and can quickly damage a car's paint. If it looks like it will overflow, simply you a siphon or syringe to remove some of the fluid.
