Are resistors need with mosfet?

I posted a very similar topic a couple minutes ago but I'm pretty sure noone can see it, so I'm copying and pasting the body. I just want to check this before I blow up my mosfet (I've never used mosfets before) Is it correct that you don't have a resistor from the voltage source to the gate (unlike bipolar transistors) Should or shouldn't you have a 1M ohm from gate to ground? Let's say I'm driving a mosfet from a 555, should I have a resistor from the output pin to gate? I think the schematic I'm reading just through a mosfet in where a bipolar use to be without changing that resistor.

LED project

Here is what I got going; I want to use a 9v battery to power a led for a project on one of my guitars. I'm not sure what kind of resistor I would need. On hand I have a 33ohm and 1m resistors. The led is a 5mm cylinder with an inward cone on top. The led ranges from red, blue, yellow, and green in different patterns. It came from a light up snow flake and the original power source are 3 LR44 button batteries. I'm not sure what rating the led is, since I didn't see anything on the packaging. The schematic is just the same as the original setup minus the 9v(LR44s) and the switch(little slider). Thanks in advance for the help!
