your cam will not wear out your cam bearings, that wear is caused by lack of oil changes, excessive spring pressure(rare), general oil contamination, careless cam installation, low oil pressure. If the cam bearings look ok, have very few or no marks on them and don't look like the copper is showing, use them as is.

no you don't have to change oil pump, you will have to remove the balancer to install cam but you can re install same balancer (put a speedy sleeve on it to keep the front seal from leaking)also replace the front seal.
