Licensing? among other things....

Is a "drivers license" required to pilot a sailboat? i know there are ASA courses but do you get licensed? or can any idiot (see SpeedoApe) get a boat and get hairy in a Harbor?

p/s not related questions but dont want to flood the boards....
1) I am still unsure of how electricity runs on a sailboat? Can you have a small fridge and dvd player (creature comforts) on a live aboard sailboat? or is it all igloo coolers and crackers?
2) where can i find the texas laws for sailing? i want to start off informed and not get in any trouble for going off and doing something stupid....
