Can you ROOT KOBO Touch/Glo ???
I'm seeing bits and pieces, python etc...
But I just want to know, can the Touch and the Glo be ROOTED so I can install KINDLE app and GMAIL (maybe angry birds, haha)
If so, can someone point me to how (baby steps please)

No go for angry birds. Gmail can be accessed via the web browser (albeit with limitations such as being in basic mode).
Kindle reader directly I don't think so, but you could look at either of the threads here Cool Reader for Kobo and Koreader running on Kobos (all of them, hopefully!).
If you're hoping for a way to read (for instance) the CEV Bible bought from Amazon, not sure either of those will help.

"rooting" in the sense you mean doesn't apply since the Kobo Glo and Touch do not run Android.

If you want android apps, you'll want to get a Nook. The Kindle and Kobo devices don't run android, so you can't use android apps on them.
