Default 2004 Prius spark plugs

Our 2004 Prius is doing just fine but... I got to thinking I don't know when to change the plugs. Ideas/suggestions?
What plugs are correct for this application?

Part of our purchase negotiation was for free oil, filter, and labor for oil change every 5000 miles. I don't think they thought we would keep the car this long (14 years and counting with between 140,000 and 150,000 miles. We just take it to the dealer every 5000 Miles and get done whatever the Toyota manual calls for. So far unscheduled maintenance includes one HID headlight. Someone broke the other one but their insurance paid. Toyota wanted over $400 to do the headlight. I bought the bulb and paid a body shop $70 to install it.

Any reason I shouldn't do the plugs myself? What about Never-seize or similar on the plugs threads?
