First off welcome to XDA ! To root your device I would recommend checking out this thread and downloading the root tool from the link in that thread. Make sure to follow the onscreen instructions of the bat file included in the root tool very carefully that you will use to root your phone. If you have any questions about anything involving the rooting process, or have any questions at all about Android customization of Android in general feel free to ask (You can PM me as well if you want).

The root procedure should still work with 4.2.2 but to be on the safe side I would recommend instead checking out this thread that will show you how to root your LG G2 (D802) with the shipping ROM (Android 4.2.2). Make sure to watch the video in that thread (At least) twice over that way you feel comfortable with the root procedure, and what is involved. As far as does it effect the bootrom which I take it you are referring to your devices stock ROM that is on the device. Rooting does not effect the stock ROM on your device it just gives you root file system access and superuser privileges (Root user, which is like administrator privileges on Windows), in the process of rooting your device the Superuser app and su binary will be installed this is what allows you to run root apps and other root tasks. If you still have questions let me know.

Glad you got it rooted! The next step if you want to customize it further is to install a custom recovery image such as TWRP following the instructions in the thread. A custom recovery image will allow you to backup your stock ROM, flash custom ROMs, custom kernels and other MODs. For custom ROM's Cyanogenmod 11 for your device is a great custom ROM to start with lots of great customization options and performance tweaks. I would start with these and then I would check out the G2 D802 Android Development Section, if you want to customize further. Always happy to help people out, let me know how it goes .
