No it will not. Whether you use a straight jailbreak or use a custom fw, the baseband will not be updated. Restoring the device will cause a baseband change if you are restoring to a fw version higher than what it is now. Restoring to a fw version higher than what it is now with a custom firmware will preserve the baseband.
If you're on 5.1.1, both tools work fine. I hear about more problems with Absinthe than with Redsn0w. Personally I suggest redsn0w based on its reliability, but Absinthe is a faster and easier tool to use.
Edit: and yes restoring it will remove the jailbreak and set it back to normal

Most complaints I read about Absinthe is the white icon thing, (I have had no issues with it) easy fix with SBSettings though.

I've seen a few complaint with jb bugs of all sorts. Personally, I used it on my first jb on 5.1.1, didn't have a problem either.
