No sewing skills is why they make fabric glues and iron on seam tape.
You don't have to be able sew to replace the screening. But it would be handy for you to buy a "seam ripper" to help you pick out and remove the old threads that held the original screening in.
With all the modern no sew adhesive options no one needs a sewing machine to make a replacement. But you do have to be able to measure and cut carefully.
