It's not illegal to root your phone, no.

As far as Wifi tethering goes, I cannot help you much there except that you are going to drain your battery pretty fast if you use that, so make sure you are plugging it in. I started using EasyTether after reading about it on this website and I really like the program. You install the app to your phone as well as a small application on your computer and when you want to tether you plug the USB into your computer & phone and click connect on the icon in your start bar. Very simple and it charges your phone while you tether! Win-win!
