Your fears are unfounded, although kudos to you for being so conscientious about the unique circumstances of your machine before attempting to upgrade. In any case, consider an iMac or Mac Pro which must have an external mouse, there is no internal pointing device.

On Intel-based Macs, the way to reset NVRAM is the same as resetting PRAM on older machines (as explained by Apple support): Shut down your Mac. Locate the ...
