Lifter question... Please help

I have a ticking noise in my engine. I've been trying to find an answer, and today I took it to a shop to have it looked at. They say that I have a sticky lifter. I think I have the bad lifter located (far back passenger side) . I don't want to spend $500 replacing a $5 part. So, I've been looking into replacing it myself.
Everything I read says that I have to remove the intake manifold to remove a lifter. I can't figure this part out. I've read that you remove the pushrods (i know how this is done) and use a strong magnet to pull out the lifter through the hole where the pushrod was. If this is the case, why the need to remove my intake????? Am I missing something?
I appreciate all responses, even the ppl who think I'm a moron for not knowing this answer. Haha.

Under the intake manifold is what some call the "valley". In the valley is where the holes for the lifters are. Hope it makes sense

Actually, it makes perfect sense. Thank you so much. I just wanted to be able to visualize what I was getting in to
