Not even close You can unlock bootloader from rooted device without wiping All you need is a Bootloader unlocker for nexus (or something like that) from play store.

1. What are a must apps for nexus 5 (non-rooted)? or other, not must, but nice to have?
2. Must have (and cheap, as I've already spent my ~400$ on this nexus) accessories?
3. Just some simple tips and tricks that a new android kitkat and N5 user should know
(This phone is a beast! )

EDIT: Should I update it from android 4.4.2? And ART. Should I turn it on before or after the updates (yes, I already decided on updating and on ART - I'll turn it on after all the updates. So no answers to these needed )
Flashlight is a must. Password Safe is good for storing all your usernames/passwords, and the usual social networking are great for really fast communication

Should flash franco kernel on stock or not? Will it interfere with ART and overall stability?

Flash whatever non-CAF kernel you like. You decide. Will not cause instability or conflict with ART

Underclocking doesn't save battery

It *can* but you'd have to only do tasks that take fewer clock cycles than your Max frequency
