Good guide, you've got to be careful when downloading apk's outside of the play store.

I have rooted every android device I've owned and never run into any issues. By rooting you can install custom recoveries (such as TWRP or CWM) allowing you to make backups of your phone which can then be easily restored should anything go wrong.

I have used Xposed on nearly all of my devices too as the aim of Xposed is to increase functionality of your device along with being able to remove manufacturer restrictions (such as volume level warnings etc), perform tweaks and install add-ons.

As long as your fairly careful and only use files and modules designed for your handset you should have no problems at all. Just remember to backup your device prior to modding or tweaking! So you can restore your device should anything go wrong.

Here's a couple of links to help you decide...

Rooting: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699486

Xposed: http://forum.xda-developers.com/xpos...ssues-t2735540

Last of all... Good luck, have fun but most of all... remember to BACKUP first!
