If I understand you correctly, you want to root and unlock your device is it?

First, take out your battery, tell us which exact model you have by reading off the sticker underneath the battery.

I have a i9020T Nexus S running 2.3.4, and I'm also considering rooting for the first time. If I root, will that in any way effect my ability to receive future updates (e.g. I won't get OTAs from google, etc)? Note that I'm not planning on installing a custom ROM, I'm just planning on rooting my stock build.

Rooting doesn't effect OTA updates. Rooting is just a matter of flashing su-2.3.6.1-ef-signed.zip. You have to flash it with ClockworkMod recovery, which most likely will require you to first unlock the bootloader. Follow the stickied rooting guide for your phone, the procedure is still the same. You can relock it afterwards if you want to keep the bootloader locked.
