I know that the point of the UV lighting and the basking lamp is to simulate daytime as much as possible, but do torts need any form of heating at night? Will they go into hibernation if it gets too cold?

Hermanns will be fine overnight at temperatures down to 10degs C. Most houses won't drop below that overnight but if you have a very cold house then a ceramic bulb on a stat will keep your temp up overnight. If you're planning on keeping them outdoors overnight through summer the same principle applies.

**Edit** Not a stupid question at all :)
