Default New HTC One Owner - Rooting questions

After weeks of researching the HTC One and the Galaxy S4, I've decided to go with the HTC One. It is a magnificent phone! I've owned the iphone 3g, 3gs, and recently, the 4s...and the HTC One looks like the true MBP of smartphones.

I'm a seasoned Jailbreaker when it comes to Iphones...and I've rooted my wife's Nook HD the other week and installed the CM 10.1 ROM by following a tutorial. However, I am still feeling very green with the entire Android Rooting world.

I have some questions that I couldnt find answers to in various forums and was hoping if someone knew off top of their heads.

1) Once I have rooted the HTC One, how would I update to Android 4.2.2 once that is released? I would like to keep the stock Sense ROM, but just want to gain Super User so that I can flash a custom kernel to convert the HTC logo into a capacitive button.

2) How easy would it be to un-install the Root and return everything into Stock form if I wanted to resell this phone for any reason.

3) Is there a Cydia like hub for custom tweaks/mods once rooted? How do people figure out what tweaks to add? Do they normally just go to the XDA forum and browse the threads? Doesnt seem very centralized nor efficient to me. And if no Cydia like hub..I wonder why not?

Thats all for now.

Thanks for any help!
