Should/can I build it on a wooden floor?
and
Does the psu need to be plugged in and off while building the pc.

I have an esd wristband, I just attach that to anything metal right?

1) YES wooden floors are much preferable to a carpeted room, wear shoes to help reduce static as well.

2) PSU needs to be UNPLUGED when building the PC... at no time should you ever install/remove a part with the power supply plugged in

3) best place to attach the wristband is an unpainted section of the case.

Doesn't really matter if you're wearing shoes... if you're not going to wear shoes then I would say no socks as they aren't 100% cotton and will draw a charge.

and for God's sake don't wear a sweater or anything fleece for sure...

I always touch the case before I touch the board again as well as one final attempt to ground myself.
