Lightbulb first gen HID conversion?

noob questions..

i tried looking for a similar thread but couldn't find any. maybe someone can point me in the right direction..
i wanna change my lights to HID lights b/c they look better and brighter than regular lights. looks like i need a conversion kit, something like this??

has anyone done this for their 2001-2004 tacoma?

if so, is it difficult to install? (1-10 scale, 1=monkey, 10=rocket science)

what are some pros & cons of HID lights?

can i still run HID with the daytime running lights?

what different brands would you recommend, and why?

i don't know anything about lights, what's a ballast? what is lumens? so...
thanks..

well i have only installed hids on my civic before but it is pretty simple all i had to do was connect the h4 plugs and then connect the wires accordingly and mount the ballast
which shud look like this
but the only thing about hids is that there WILL be alot of glare so aim ur headlights down so u dont blind people....and i dont know about cops in ur area if they will pull u over or not but in hawaii they dont really care cause about 50% of them have hids on there personal cars
