Yes, the factory manual from Toyota. Haynes is a good manual, althouth it is not as comprehensive as the factory manual. I am not a fan of Chiltons, but it is better than nothing. Depending on the age of the car, check the owners manual for availability. Ebay is also a good resource.
WD-40 is not a good penetrant, it is a Water Displacer
it is fine to protect metal. PB Blaster is far superior to remove rusted bolts.
Calipers, Ridge reamer, hone, piston ring installer, plastigauge, torque wrench are all tools you will need to rebuild an engine. Additionally, all cars have "speciality" tools used to remove cam shims for example, or to install a variety of seals and bearings.
While you can substitute some of these, some you cannot. A Haynes manual will give you options, while the facory manual will mention a ton of speciality tools.
While you do not "need" air, it will make the job much easier, by a long shot. A car that is 23 years old will have rust problems, if not on the body on the suspension. You can count on breaking/stripping a few bolts. Soaking rusted bolts in PB Blaster will minimize this.
My advice would be to purchase a Haynes manual and read it through to get an idea of what you are getting into :D
