    Well, no. You can root and buy Root Explorer and then no need for terminal emulators. If you like typing code you can use them. Rooting does unlock the potential of your phone. My advice is read, read, read. Then read some more. Only root if your comfotable doing it and aware of the risks.

    i will say if you decide to root and you are either comfortable with the terminal or would like to see what it's all about, there is a method of rooting that uses the terminal as apposed to a one click method like z4root.
