I concur. Even though I no longer run the 'buntus, I too have used the noobslab PPAs before now. They're highly thought of 'around the block'; there's nothing there that'll come back to bite you. If there is, I've never heard of it.....and there's many reputable sites that will refer you to them for themes'n'stuff.
In a nutshell.....it's as safe as anything on the 'net can be considered to be these days. You don't stay on the web for very long if you're 'scamming' people, or installing crap on their machines; word soon gets around!
The terminal is recommended because that's the quickest & simplest way to install their PPA. I believe in Ubuntu it uses the same 'wget' mechanism as in the Puppies; it's a standard Linux command-line utility, which gives you a link to the net via the terminal, and allows you to download stuff, using the same.
