My friend would like to install the latest version of Cyanogenmod on his HTC One X running on Android 4.2.2 w/ Sense 5. The issue is, I'm only experienced with Nexus devices, and so I'm not familiar with terms such as 'super cid' and 's-off', so any help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

First of all, check the faq http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=38702147
There's no diy s-off for one x.
Latest official cyanogenmod is 11, http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=48786215 still in early nightly development, expect a lot of bugs as stated in the op. I wouldn't recommend it to your friend for daily use, HTC is no nexus by far.

i hope this will help you http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2031359. there is no s-off yet. you have to unlock bootloader via htcdev.com to install custom recoveries. also check this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2069904 for rooting and other guides.

If there is no S-OFF, does that mean I cannot install CM on it?
