Question: How to replace a guide ?

I would like to replace a broken guide on a rod...

Will buy the guides soon but wanted some help on how to do the work...

This is an old rod and I don't care if it looks professionally done...just want it functional....

1) What type thread do I use (I assume I use thread to wrap the guide down)

2) What do I use to smooth over the wraps and make the wraps stay in place.

Any help will be most appreciated..

thank you
