is this a good method to try?
Easier 1-2-3 Droid 2 Root for Windows / Linux / Mac - xda-developers
well, i was pretty excited at first, but ive already got Wireless Tether, i bought SetCPU, and i got a screen shot app, and i think that's all there is to do. I'm not interested in getting a custom ROM, partly because i don't know whats so great about them and partly because im afraid of destroying my phone.
So, aside from custom ROMs, what else is there to do now that I'm rooted?
There are a lot of pros to installing new ROMs and messing up your phone is unlikely. Even if you did you just simply restore your phone. But other than ROMs there are kernels, custom boot animations, lots of possibilities

There is more to living than just existing.
The thing is i probably value my personal information FAR more than the average person does. So yes, i guess i could restore it if i had to, but i don't want to lose the stuff on my phone under any circumstances.
what are kernals?
and by custom boot animation, do you mean the droid eye? why would you want to replace that boot animation? it's awesome
