XT1053 is the model number for the GSM Dev Edition, AND The GSM Unlocked (ships with T-Mobile SIM) Moto Maker edition, aka T-Mobile varient.
The only difference is the Dev Edition being the standard black face, woven white back, silver accents (buttons and camera ring), only comes as 32Gig and says Dev Edition on the back.
You are correct, while the bootloader unlock code is available from Moto's web site
for the XT1053, completing the request for the code voids the warranty unless you have a Developer Edition.

Link to get bootloader unlock code from Moto -> https://motorola-global-portal.custh...-your-device-a
but but if yours is NOT the Dev Edition, it will void your warranty.
Yes, unlock the bootloader, flash TWRP, boot to TWRP and install SuperSU.
I suggest these instructions for ADB and MFastboot setup -> http://mark.cdmaforums.com/ADB.htm
For Rooting the X with unlocked bootloader I usually point to -> http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...ev-ed-t2649738
However, while the process is correct, there is a newer TWRP (which @samwathegreat
has pointed you to http://androidhosting.org/Devs/Dhack..._msm8960dt.img
), and there is a newer SuperSU (see -> http://download.chainfire.eu/447/Sup...SU-v1.99r4.zip
