That is the "sony" way but all the process is done with this app. You lose same features as with the "sony" way.

Put phone into fastboot mode, enter IMEI, then get unlock code, then unlock BL, then select the file and flash the kernel.

You get unlocked bootloader, custom kernel installed. When you have installed the custom kernel, enter Recovery (press Volume Down button many times during kernel boot logo), wipe the necessary partitions (depends on the ROM) and install new ROM.

Not necessary. No SD Data is touched during this process. Unlocking bootloader though does remove all data from your phone inside (not SD), so make backups if necessary.

Gapps stand for Google Apps. They are only required, if you install non-stock based ROM (CyanogenMod aka CM or any other).

To be confirmed: to "make phone as new" - what pratition should I wipe? I am going to backup everything possible earlier.
For most ROMs, you need to wipe /data, /cache and /system. Non-stock based may require you to not wipe /system.

If it is on your SD card, your phone can find it. Alternatively, you can put it to /system/media/audio/ringtones folder with any file explorer, that can edit system directory (I personally use ES File Explorer).

Seems fine for now, nothing that I can think of.
