For instance, I've seen one idea (maybe Terez?) that perhaps Rand takes a knife ter'angreal on his way to SG (to do whatever needs to be done there). Would this sort of theory imply that the series will end with Rand dead?
It depends on what you mean by "dead." According to the Ael'finn, Rand will live after he dies ("To live, you must die"). Moreover, there is Nicola's Foretelling that, "...he who is dead yet lives."

Do these mean Rand will be resurrected in some way, or do they refer to his afterlife as Hero of the Horn and his eventual rebirth?

Different theories call for different scenarios, so there isn't one answer to your question.
