Actually, Android geeks might well prefer the hacked fire or nook to the Nexus. Even when you are not a geek but are willing to read instructions written by geeks you will be able to turn the Fire HD into something useful outside Amazon's eco-system.

Is there a risk?

As pointed out by others, wait a month or so after the procedure has been published. By then it will have been thoroughly tested by many users and easy to use step-by-step instructions are available. In a worst case scenario it is possible to brick a device, but that is not irreversible, either. There will also be instructions on how to get it going again and return it to ex-factory state (if you can't find those, don't ever attempt to modify/hack a device). I find how-to-videos are the best, you see the instructions, you see it being done, and you see what happens on the device.

Just rooting is usually extremely simple, flashing a custom ROM takes a little more but is hardly rocket science. If you have some old device you may try flashing that one first to become more comfortable. If it is an Android device you will also find instructions on XDA.

For a lot of people, even rooting/hacking isn't indispensable for the FIREs, since they allow app sideloading. It is the Nooks that have traditionally *needed* hacking to achieve anything close to full android functionality.
Total lockdown is most uncool.
