i have read the guide and i got the led on
but my hdd not working. I have plug it in and my hdd is became very hot.

my question is will the led on if i'm not plug the molex into my device?
or only the led on after i put it into the device? cause my led is on as long as i turn on the psu.

Led will light up when there is current coming from the PSU to the cables. The molex doesn't need to be connected to a device to work.

With properly calculated current limiting resistor it will not affect the operation of the device in any way. If you short the legs of the leds etc. you can cause damage to the device so be careful but when done properly there will be no danger.

You can trim the legs of the leds as much as you like. Just don't let them touch each other (short circuit = short) when the computer is powered up.
