This is a fine example of the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
But if you insist. First you remove the front cover, the inner cover/floor upper cover and the tunnel cover --which may be easier if you also remove the seat first. Then remove the side skirts, the lower frame and the under cover. While you are down there remove the two lower fuel tank bolts. Then come back up and remove the one top tank mount nut (above the fuel fill) and unplug the wire harness at the fuel pump. Disconnect the fuel delivery and return lines and finagle the fuel tank down thru the bottom of the frame.
Now the easy part: remove the 6 or 8 nuts holding the fuel pump assembly and take the fuel pump out of the tank.
The fuel filter is the cannister thing. Luckily it is replaceable and is somewhat common to Honda Accords if it does not appear to be a part available from your local Honda motorcyle source.
Then it's a just simple matter of reversing the steps to reassemble everything --after you've repaired all the broken tabs you've discovered.
It's easier the second time.
I suggest a generous fuel system treatments with Techron fuel additive before going to the above effforts.
