I recently did this job.  Much much easier than I supposed.  I didn't glue at all and seems to b e fine.  There are small push-clips that you will discover one the front of the doors.  Get replacements on ebay, very cheap.  I spayed ArmorAll all over the seals a few times before installation.  The slip into channel much more easily this way and are slightly lubricated and so seal a bit better.

I do hear a lot more road noise than I think I should. I am assuming the seals are glued into place and need to be cut and replaced but I doubt there is a simple DIY way to do that and make it look original like the factory.

SO i found these stick on rubber seals for cars and they are cheap and people have rated them highly. Should I go ahead and use these? They paste onto the body of the car and would create a tight seal ( I think ).
Do you think I can get away with using these or not? I already have the new sunroof seal (OEM) and not sure how to install it though.

Just to b clear, the seals I referred to are windscreen seals. I got back & I think front from URO and they appear to b amazing quality. Have not installed yet though. Hope to install very soon!!!!!!!
