Questions about iron on transfer paper without a heat press

I'm a total newbie looking at tinkering around and making some custom shirts and maybe Converse / Jordans, but I don't have a heat press (or room for a big one.) I've seen some well reviewed laser printer transfer paper on Amazon (I only have a laser at home), but I'm wondering if I can make it work with a hand iron or hand heat press? I guess it probably won't come out as well, right?

The second question is last time I saw much iron on stuff, it had this really glossy finish over the color and looked kind of cheap. Is that because it wasn't ironed in enough, or is that just an unavoidable artifact of doing iron on?

Thanks for any inputs!
