[coreboot] How to test

I am a newbie interested in contributing to coreboot. One question I have is testing.

How do most people test  new bits. Do they actually flash the BIOS on their motherboards. Doesn't that cause issues because as I understand these PROMs only support a limited number of flashes before they go bad ? Or do folks use some sort of  emulator and/or spare chips to keep testing.

Also any inexpensive standalone bios chip programmers on the market ?
