One of.my bulbs has gone and i want to replace both of them

How do i know if the ballasts are 35w or 55w as i can't see anything written on them? Does it matter? Will a 55w bulb work no matter what the ballast is?

Are you talking about OEM HID or an aftermarket conversion from Halogen?

A 55W HID will need a 55W ballast unit.

It will say on the ballast somewhere. Worst case scenario £38 will get you a half decent 55w kit brand new off eBay. If you look at my post on his bulb colours there is a link to a good kit there...

If i've already got a kit fitted, i assume fitting a new one would be **** easy?

Very easy, especially as yours will have already been router through the headlamp unit.
