You can run straight stainless headers with no issues, I did on my '07 for the better part of 2 years. The reason we all say get the ceramic coating is because it drastically reduced under hood temps, but for he I had a ram-air hood with heat extractors, so I never had a whole lot of air trapped under the hood.

To most people, the performance gains of long tubes outweighs the simplicity of a shorty install. If you get a proper header kit you get the headers catted mid-pipes, and y-pipe. A good kit will come with the O2 sensor extension harness, so there's not a whole lot of modification required.

If you just get the header manifold, then yes, you'll need to relocate everything and it'll be a PITA.
