If you look inside the socket, there are two screws, loosen those and the base will come off.
If you use lamp wire, and want it done to electrical specs, the rigid wire goes to the white (neutral) and the smooth wire goes to the gold (hot). If using two or three strand, white is neutral and black is hot. You should ground it as well.
