Question Programming TPMS on a 2010 WRX

I did some searching here but I don't believe I've seen a definitive answer to this question, or anything new for older Subarus. I have a bad TPMS sensor on my 2010 WRX (expecting all remaining ones to go bad soon), and I also often swap wheels between my other Subies (winter tires, and so on), so I'd like to outfit my wheel sets with sensors that I can reprogram myself. Are there TPMS valves that I can buy and set their IDs so that they are the same, and is there a tool that I could use to cause the car to accept those TPMS sensors? Or some way to put the car into programming mode without a special tool? Any established working solution for this that doesn't involve spending hundreds of dollars?

When I look for wheel/tire packages on TireRack they suggest a $45 activation tool but I think the ECU of my car needs to be put in programing mode with a special tool, so I don't think their idea is right. Any authoritative answers to this dilemma? Thanks!
