While torque settings are important, being off by a few percent isn't. For non-critical bolts, even those with factory-specified torque settings, many a professional mechanic won't bother pulling out a torque wrench and will just do it by feel. Basically, my point is that if you're just a hobbyist, buy the cheapest torque wrench from a non-generic brand and half decent reviews, hopefully with a certification certificate. Though it won't be as accurate as a torque wrench costing 10 times more, considering that things like lubricant, loctite, bolt and nut condition, heat, etc can affect torque values, a cheap torque wrench will do you infinitely more good than no torque wrench at all. Also, remember to always store your torque wrench in the "unloaded" position.

As far as where to find the torque values, you can find just about all of them in the service manual.
