To get the ability to install apps to SD Card, you need to have Android 2.2 or higher.
It doesn't support Android 2.1.

There are many good ROMs available here in XDA. To install them you need to ROOT your X8 first.
Here is an YouTube video exposing how to root XPERIA X8 (as I figured you need a video tutorial) :

After you root it, you are independent to flash any CUSTOM ROMS.
I suggest Cyanogen Mod :

With that you can install Apps to SD card by default or move them or force install to SD Card.

No, there isn't any risk in rooting a phone.
Only risk is Carelessness which can lead to a brick.
Make sure to know about your Android version, Kernel and Modem before rooting and match them with the file with which you are going to root ur device.
Until you are careful on doing the instructions step by step and carefully, nothing in this world can damage your device when rooting.
