Whenever I try to start my toyota when its cold, it won't start unless I pour some gas into the carb. Why? Also when it does start its very rough and it hesitates a lot throughout acceleration. I already changed the fuel pump. What should I do? Any help in answering these questions would be greatly appreciated.

Check the bowl float, the float is not allowing enough gas into carb.

Do I need to take off the carb to find this float? And my knowledge of cars is medium to average, is it something that I can change myself? Thanks in advance for your answers

Yes remove carb. Float bowl allows a certain amount of gas so you do not stall car. The bowl itself may be worn to the point it needs replacing.
