Like between the cam shaft and the valve lifters/valves? They are known as
shims. Not sure that this can be done without a special tool. After 100k
miles mine never needed to be adjusted. Dealer checked at 80k when I had
the timing belt changed.

The rear shoes (drum brakes?) are self adjusting -- when you pull up the
hand brake it adjusts. Suspect rear discs (if equipt) are same. No special
tools required to change - but if you don't know what you're doing don't
start learning on the brake system!

Get a $12 Hayes or Chiltons book --- or check one out at the library.

No "tappets" in this design of valve gear. Tappets are the
adjustable end of a rocker arm. Your Camry 4 cylinder uses bucket
followers with a selective shim interposed between the bucket
follower and the cam shaft. You do need feeler gauges, a metric
micrometer, and two special tools (bucket hold-down tool and bucket
wedge tool). You might use your feeler gauges to measure the "valve
lash" to see if adjustment is required at this time and if necessary,
have a qualified and equipped mechanic perform the work.
