The adverb for "Dangerous" is "Dangerously" and:

* い-Adjectives build it by replacing the last い with く:
危なく住んでいます (あぶなく すんでいます) = (I) live dangerously

* な-Adjectives are followed by に:
丁寧に答えました (ていねいに こたえました) = (He) replied politely

When you say that (something) is dangerous, "dangerous" is still an adjective, so it is perfectly correct to say, (Subject) 危ない(あぶない)です

On a side note, I hope you don't mind if I say that I think it would be easier for you (and for the rest of us) if you learned at least a minimum level of English before posting questions about Japanese on an English-speaking forum...

I don't know if there is an idiomatic expression for "fall in love", but AFAIK I'd say:

It is dangerous to fall in love: 好きになることは危ない (すき に なる こと は あぶない)

愛のことは危ないでしょう (あい の こと は あぶない でしょう) = The business (the thing) about love is probably dangerous

友達いることも危ない (ともだち いる こと も あぶない) = The fact of being friends is dangerous too
