uhhh... what does he need hot glue for? and a sewing needle? doublestick tape works just fine to hold the chip and wires down, and a toothpick with a reasonably sharp tip works to apply flux paste to bios pins.
as for practicing your soldering, go find some piece of shit broken walkman or something and practice soldering a decent connection on some small pins on a chip.
and make sure you get flux PASTE, not the flux liquid resin in a bottle. the flux paste will stick when you apply it to a point without running all over the place. http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...%5Fid=64%2D022
they also have some that costs a little less that comes in a fat white toothpaste looking tube. that particular stuff looks more like really think syrup, but it works also.
try www.psxmodchips.net/ps2tips.htm for other required tools etc.
Well I would use the needle for removing solder blobs and shorts if I did not have a professional desoldering station - or if you hate using desoldering braid - which I do hate.
not sure for what reason necro suggested it - but they are handy "tools" to have at hand...
hot glue for holding your wires in place - I don't use it cos I keep my wires as short as possible but for those who like to make their installs look all pretty with nice curves and all the wires held together like as if they were ribbon cable then hot glue is a must.
