Default Noob to rooting! Help with simple questions??

Hi guys,


I've looked around however didn't find the answers so thought I'd just ask as might be useful for someone else too..

I want to install fonts on my Z1 Compact, however understand I need to root my device in order to do this.

I don't particularly want to change my rom or anything as quite happy with it.. Do I have a choice? Also, I'm assuming will lose all my personalisations during the process? Folders and icon location within my menu etc.

Basically, what is the most minimal disruptive way to be able to change fonts on my Device?!
