Do I need to purchase any special tooling to replace the timing belt for a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo? Also, how do I differentiate the tension pulley from the rest of the pulley?

Do you
have the same problem?

VERY complicated proceedure needs special tools LOTS of steps. Also if belt broke then valves are bent and head needs removed. If you do not have this type repair experience suggest you have this done.
