No worries... they're actually on the ATX motherboard power connector. You can splice into them, if you feel brave... :^) No need to though. +5 or +12 will run anything you need.

Check your power supply. The sticker should have maximum amperages or wattages for each line. If it's watts, divide by the line volts to get the amps: 60 W on the 5 V line is 12 A, while 60 W on the 12 V line is 5 A.

The manufacturer, the specs of the LED, among others. I remember frying an LED when I was twelve, but I don't remember how many volts it took. I think it was more than 12, though. In any case, 5 volts is almost 100% safe.
