    What exactly are roms? Sorry if this has been a question that's getting asked a lot, but I couldn't find anything here that explained it well.

    From what I gathered it's a baseline to develop custom software for your phone or it is a custom UI.. I feel rather ignorant lol

    Pretty much... The main goals of Roms are usually to add new features, speed up your device, and have custom themes, among other things. For a beginner getting into Droid modding, I recommend installing "Rom Manager" in the marketplace and downloading CyanogenMod 5.0.7.1. Make sure you backup though.
