    Managed to figure out how to achieve both effects relatively easily. I'll show my solutions for future reference.

    This is all done serverside! There is no need for an addon, though backups are obviously recommended.

    Toolgun: In the server, go to garrysmod/gamemodes/sandbox/entities/weapons/gmod_tool/shared.lua

    Sound: In the file, find SWEP.ShootSound = Sound( "Airboat.FireGunRevDown" ) and change it to SWEP.ShootSound = Sound( "" )
    (I didn't check if @karl-police's solution worked, sorry)

    Beam: In the same file, find the "function [​IMG] (image because of emoticons) line. Below it, delete these lines:
    local effectdata = EffectData()
    effectdata:SetOrigin( hitpos )
    effectdata:SetNormal( hitnormal )
    effectdata:SetEntity( entity )
    effectdata:SetAttachment( physbone )
    util.Effect( "selection_indicator", effectdata )

    local effectdata = EffectData()
    effectdata:SetOrigin( hitpos )
    effectdata:SetStart( self.Owner:GetShootPos() )
    effectdata:SetAttachment( 1 )
    effectdata:SetEntity( self )
    util.Effect( "ToolTracer", effectdata )
    The first line adds the ring that shows when you use the toolgun on something. You can keep it if you want, and it doesn't usually show on other peoples screens, but removing the second line is imperative as it removes the beam effect.

    Physgun: Hold C for the context menu, press the Player Model button and change Physgun color in the Colors tab to 0, 0, 0 as the RGB value. This seemingly works in combination with the toolgun edit (as I wasn't able to replicate this in singleplayer).
