Reflash ROM is the solution now, and always, always have another launcher, then you could have long pressed home and your problems would be over,

You could go on your web browser on a pc go on to Google playre download it make sure your phones on with a internet connection and it should download and install automatically them it should work without having to reflash a ROM

I would suggest, try to push a launcher app by adb if you have it installed on your pc.

run adb (in cmd)

adb remount
adb push name_of_you_launcher.apk /system/app/

As it looks like you´re not that expert, flash a new ROM by using ODIN.

What you need:

-Original USB-cable from your device
-A ROM as OnePackage
-*.ops file (e.g. AriesVe.ops for the I9001)
-Odin (use with admin rights)
-Kies drivers (remember to kill all Kies processes in task manager)

Start Odin with admin rights;
Press volume down+home button+power on your device at the same time, hold for at least 2 seconds;
Connect your phone to usb cable, should be recognized by Odin now);
Select your *.ops file;
Set hook at OnePackage;
Select downloaded package (unzip if its zipped, should be *.tar.md5);
Start flashing;

No, only running phone with data connection or wifi needed.
On PlayStore (via PC) you have an "install" button for all apps compatible with your device. Push it for a launcher app (still on your PC), confirm the dialog (still on your PC) and wait a some time (don't know if you still can see the download notification icons on your phone).
The app you want to install will be downloaded to your phone automatically. Don't know if this works without a launcher installed but before reflashing you could just try.
Wait a while, then try to press the home button to get the choose-launcher dialog.

ADB is as mentioned another way to easily install apps via e.g. USB connection but you have to have the needed tools installed (PC).
