RE:Step by Step
After a quick Google Search I found a Guide to the removal Schrader TPMS Wheel Sensors.

Removing and Installing a Clamp-In Sensor
For a quick overview, here are the steps for removal and installation of a clamp-in style TPMS sensor. Or, you can download an illustrated version.

STEP 1: Remove the sealing cap. Remove the valve core using a Schrader Valve Core Torque Tool (Part #20141).

STEP 2: Remove hex nut using hex nut wrench and push sensor into tire, allowing the sensor to drop into tire.

STEP 3: Gently bounce tire to ensure that the sensor falls to the bottom of the tire.

STEP 4: Place wheel on the tire changing machine and break both beads. Make sure that the sensor is at the bottom of the tire.

STEP 5: Place the wheel on the turntable and demount the tire from the wheel according to the tire changer manufacturer's instructions. The sensor can now be safely removed from the tire.

STEP 6: Carefully remove the grommet seal from the sensor using a nonmetallic tool to prevent damage to the aluminum stem. Install a new grommet by hand to prevent tearing the grommet or damaging the stem.

STEP 7: Reinstall valve through the rim hole with the label facing down. To prevent sensor damage, keep sensor alignment level. Do not push down or up on the sensor during torquing.

STEP 8: Hand thread a new hex nut onto the valve stem. Hand tighten until the nut touches the rim.

STEP 9: Use Schrader Torque Wrench (Part #20142). Set to the proper torque. (Varies by vehicle; refer to the Mitchell® TPMS Systems Guide or TIA Relearn Chart for specification.)

STEP 10: Lubricate and mount outside bead of the tire to the rim. Caution: To avoid damage, position sensor 90° from the duck head in the direction of table rotation. The tire should be mounted to the wheel using tire changer manufacturer's instructions.

STEP 11: Use Schrader Valve Core Torque Tool (Part #20141) to install a new electroless nickel-plated valve core into sensor. SEE CAUTION.*

STEP 12: Tire with TPMS is now ready for proper inflation

RE:Step by Step
Is the schrader valve tool 100% necessary for this procedure or can it be done without it?

RE:Step by Step
What about an area of the website just dedicated to step by step for the installation and removal of tpms from each specific car model?

RE:Step by Step
Is it really necessary for a database or is the procedure pretty generic?

RE:Step by Step
Most "clamp in" style sensors are removed and installed the "same" way, so there really wouldn't be a need for a chart.
