you can solder parts like that with an ordinary soldering iron, i can show
you how. It's not hard. Do you have a PC board made yet?
I'm assuming you have two or three chips per board. If you have like a
dozen chips per board you might prefer to do it with stencils, which you
can cut from transparent folder covers (thesis binder cover) with a laser
cutter. Then once you have the solder paste in place, you put the chips
on with tweezers and rest the board on a hotplate for 60 seconds.
the other option is to dispense the solder paste with a 3d printer, like
