Default [Q] Adblock and age restrictions question on Galaxy Tab 3

I am interested in buying Galaxy Tab 7 3.0 for my son, he has been using playbook until know, which he enjoys but the lack of games and application is forcing him to spend his time on youtube.
On stock youtube app on playbook, there are no video commercials, it somehow skips those.

If I buy a Tab 7 3.0 is there anyway to a) Install adblock plus to get rid of video commercials and b) is there anyway to set age restriction so kids won't watch weird videos that always happen to pop in "related" column or at the end of video.

You can root and use adaway. It works on YouTube really well. I think you can change the settings on YouTube to it will filter for age restrictions.

Thank you.
There are no special editions or model numbers I should be avoiding, right? Is there any "unrootable" version like an OTA or an update I should avoid?
Thanks!

Awesome, so T210 is a good one to get, right?
I am looking into purchasing this:

Mfr Part #:
SM-T210RGNYXAR
UPC:
887276851280

I guess it is the same rootable model. Which root method would you recommend? I don't really need anything fancy, sure I can understand a custom rom would make this run a lot faster, but I was wondering if I should look for a debloat rom or some other custom rom.
Thanks again for your replies.

I used a prerooted file that works pretty well.. It does take a while to flash though.

I have been using S.E.A.L. rom for a few days and would recommend that over the preroot method.
