chemicals for laying carpet? No should be nothing as far as I know. (tile guy so I don't know everything bout carpet lol). Now for the wood flooring depends on what you are going with? Prefinished? Are they sanding and staining it? sand and stain you will have LOADS of dust then the stain and finish. Prefinished depending on type there won't be any chemicals if you have a lock in system besides maybe a bit of glue.

Quite honestly idk what floors my parents want, just that I'm getting new carpet and they are getting wood. If it is going to be "dusty" what should I do? I run several bubblers in my tanks as well

Well if they get sanded floors you could always toss a sheet over the tank/airpumps that should keep all but the finest particals out. Or you could do plastic sheeting if you had some handy.

If they are sanding the floor you may want to put the tank on a blanket or something just to dampen the vibrations. It all depends on where your tank is and where they are sanding. Other than that i can't see a normal install of carpet or prefinished hardwood causing too many vibrations.
