Default Long Press Power Button for Flashlight

Does anyone know of an app that allows you to toggle the flashlight by long pressing the power button without rooting?

There is not AFAIK. You will need to be rooted at least.

What about Tasker? I'll admit I haven't used the program in ages so I don't know if it's really possible to set up something like that(Would think that it is perhaps...) and I do know that some setups doesn't require root?

Overall though, manufacturers really doesn't trust the average person that much to make configurations on devices without messing it up so in order to do most of the fun things you'll need root access, pretty much the same with PCs isn't it? So if you're not prepared to do it....

Sense 6 toolbox has this option. I've been using it for a long time now. You also need to have xposed installed also for it to work though.
