Replacing windows in brick is not hard. Check the opening rsquareness. When measuring, deduct 3/8” from actual width and height. example, if it measures 20”x32-1/2”, order 19-5/8”x321/8”. There should be holes for attatching the windows. You can use Tap-Cons or pre-drill for dowels and conventional screws. Fill the gap with insulation and caulk the edges. It will hold. Don’t use foam insulation, it will warp the window. Make sure the sill is good, sloping away from the window. Good luck
