You may or may not be able to.  I don't know.  I know I can get them from

It does matter.  Through-hole parts are way easier for a complete 
neophyte to solder.

I have *never* been able to build any kind of analog circuit by relying 
on data sheets alone.  I don't know anyone at all who has.  And even 
today's digital circuits are becoming increasingly "analog", as their 
operating frequencies drives signal rates close to the maximum bandwidth 
of a circuit trace, and when dealing with multiple, different voltages 
for chips.
