Why I ask this is because I read somewhere that if you clear your entire history that it will also remove the passwords that were saved to those sites. Is this correct?

Just having my history go as far as 2002 is just unneeded and would like to just clear it all but I want to make sure that nothing else will get messed up.

You should use the Firefox Password Manger to store your passwords, if you do that they will not be lost when you use Firefox settings or options to clear your History. You can turn the logins on or off and delete them if you wish.

If you use other third party utilities or programs you could lose anything consult the software's support site.

Details like websites remembering you (log you in automatically) are stored in a cookie.

So if you clear the cookies then you are temporarily logged off and you will have to log in again if that is what you meant.
