To get the green lights back, you only need to spend $0.10 on a small legnth of wire. No fancy equipment necessary for such a simple procedure!
The wire jumping procedure isn't dangerous in the least if your somewhat comfortable with your car. I mean - you do it by grounding the wire. It's not like it has power and your going to short it - the only way you could damage it is by connecting it to a positive lead.
The reset tools work in the same way. It jumpers the reset pin with a ground pin when you press the button.
