I need elements removed from a video and I am not very good at doing those kind of things, so some help would be appreciated.

Assuming your version has the mask tool, watch this video:
From about 3-mins in it tells you how to carefully draw around an object for 1 frame, then repeat for other frames. A good tip is to draw around frame 1, then draw round frame 3. Vegas will then guess at what frame 2's mask looks like but follow it up with your own adjustments. This principle saves a lot of time, especially if movement within the frame is small e.g. do frame 1, then frame 60, then frame 30, then frames 15 and 45 etc until the mask accurately follows your chosen object.
It'll take you ages but you'll end up with the 1st guy masked from the background. Then drop in a blank background behind him without guy 2.

A good technique for matching the movement in that shot would be to add the bandage thing to a single frame from that shot in photoshop (or similar program). Get it looking seamlessly integrated to that one still frame. Then "motion track" the whole new face in that frame to the old face in every other frame. Then mask off just the bandage with some feathering and it should hopefully look synced okay.
