It is very easy but sometime try doing it manually it will be handy to learn the basic fastboot commands in case you softbrick your device which if your a flashaholic like me it will happen I've owned this phone three months I've softbrocked it 5 times

Yes but sometimes when you brick it it won't turn on it is a very picky/stubborn device

Just plug it in to the charger and hold both volume buttons and it should go into bootloader mode

although thus devices is uber easy to root you can use towelroot to root it even easier as well and then put a custom recovery on via flashify app
