comment Universal Equivariant Line Bundles
Yes, and the construction is similar to the nonequivariant case. Let $V$ be the direct sum of countably many copies of each irreducible complex representation of $G$, let $BU_G$ be the space of $1$-dimensional subspaces of $V$, and let $EU_G$ be the space of pairs $(\ell, v)$ where $\ell \in BU_G$ and $v \in \ell$. Then $\pi: EU_G \to BU_G$, $\pi(\ell, v) = \ell$ is a universal $G$-equivariant line bundle.

comment Notations in Riemannian Geometry
$i^\ast TN$ denotes the pullback of the bundle $TN$ via the map $i$: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pullback_bundle. It has a different meaning than the map $i^\ast : T^\ast N \longrightarrow T^\ast M$ and in particular does not mean the image of $TN$ under the map $i^\ast: T^\ast N \longrightarrow T^\ast M$ (which does not make sense).

comment Involutive Properties of Space-structures on Smooth Manifolds
There's nothing particularly wrong with Turaev's book. You can read the original Reshetikhin-Turaev papers to see their construction of a 3-manifold invariant. The papers are very readable, especially if you have already been going through Turaev's book. Another reference is Kock's book, but it only treats the case of 2D TQFTs. Kock's book is very easy to read, however, and will give you a good idea of what TQFT is about.
