So relieved to hear there's a solution. But please forgive me for being an idiot...
What do I do after I open Terminal? I paste in the command you mentioned, and...
Do I save? Where to and what as? What save options do I choose in the dialogue?

After entering (or pasting) that line of text, you just hit return - things you type in the terminal are "commands" that are executed immediately. There will be no confirmation or alert if it worked.

Saving, in the Terminal application, means either saving a session, or a log of a session's activity, neither of which need to be done for the command to have effect.
