It's called oil or hydraulic fluid. You need a nice level surface, jack stands and all the necessary tools to perform the job. Previous experience working on cars is a must. Struts should be done in pairs. Research online at the MB forums or purchase a service manual.

Will bleeding be necessary. And will used struts be able to be replacement struts?

I personally would not installed used struts, you don't know how old they are and since your going in to replace and they fail all that work would be for nothing.

Silly question but why do you want to change your struts. The hydraulic fluid lines are all part of a self levelling system. This system is controlled by a pressure sensing valve located on the underside of the vehicle close to the rear differential. If you have levelling issues you could be suffering with a seized valve lever or broken connecting rod.
