buy a station, good ones are https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11704 and http://www.weller-toolsus.com/soldering/systems/wes-series/weller-w... (i have a weller)

They last forever, you can probably get second hand ones reasonable (I did)

for removing chips, i use low melt solder (I don't do it often, so this is cheap) http://store.curiousinventor.com/chip-quikr-surface-mount-desolderi...

OK thanks for the info
