Configuring .bashrc

I have two main questions with .bashrc.

First off, can I open up a security hole? I'm not going to blindly add anything, but is there anything in the file that, if I deleted it, it would open me up to attack?

The only thing I really want to do is make ls/dir return colors based on the item(s), like red for a folder and blue for a file or something like that.
I've googled but haven't found many clear tutorials on it. If anyone knows how to configure bashrc or knows a good tutorial, please link me.

Thank you for replies.
