No, You don't need jack stands but it is safer to use them being you will have your head underneath the car. If the tools don't show up, you could always use a flat screwdriver and lightly tap the tabs on the collar to break them free.

The rears are done with the allen wrench. You don't need any sockets. This can all be done by hand.
You can do one wheel at a time but just don't tighten anything up until you are happy with the height.
