How to put Uke down, with no possible resistance/counter attack, AND without snapping the wrist/inflicting pain, is just what i was wondering...

From the note in the book I understood it is very difficult (for Uke...)
Or was it just referring to break falls, vs proper ukemi rolling somehow (somersault like)?

Again, bear with me, I am a beginner
Why don't you ask this in training? I don't think forums will help all that much in learning this and I don't think there is any other way to learn this than by practising in partner training, breaking your partner's balance, moving out of harm's way, etcetera.
