A spoke wrench is around $5.... read up on how to true wheels online, and when you try it yourself, take it slow. Make small adjustments until you get a feel for exactly what you are doing.
19 and 22 are the diameters of the crank's spindle. Profiles are 19mm, Primos are 22mm.
If you mean how do you know how tall your bars are, flip your bike upside down and measure from the floor to where the stem clamps to the bar. That will get you pretty close. I think it's supposed to be measured from the center of the clamping area to the center of the grip area.

Now the cranks does that depend on the frame or Spindle?

to ture a wheel if u dont have brakes flip the bike over and tape a straw or something to the frame pretty close to your rim and spin the wheel check where it hits the straw (on both sides) and then adjust it from there with a spoke wrench

thats how i do it but it takes me a really long time because im never sure if the straw is the same on both sides or not so i just take it really slow while i true it to make sure its right

1- the 19 or 22 has to do with the spindle, which you need to know when your replacing your bottom bracket stuff that way all you shit fits.

2- it's what's comfortable if that's what you mean... you need to be specific when you ask questions they can be one of a few things. what height you need, or the height of the bar itself etc etc

3 - if your wheel has a wobble on one spot on one side of your wheel you need to adjust the opposite side of the wobble. and never turn your spoke wrench more than a quarter of a turn at time... (you can pop your tire if you get to hasty and all that nonsense or you can just throw your wheel completely out of true.)
