    :welcome: to the Forum.
    Seems like you have either been lurking here for a while or you had a previous android phone. But you seem to have the jest of what to do to install a custom rom. Just make sure that after you root, run Bootstrap and boot into recovery and make a backup. It helps to have a backup of the stock rom if you have any problems down the road.
    If you have any questions just ask. Someone is always here to help.
    Enjoy your stay with us.:)

    Not really sure what you're asking, but anything that's going to cost you money will warn you in advance. All updates to the phone are handled OTA (though you can do manual installs) and are free. Membership here is free unless you choose to pay. Most apps we'll recommend to you are free, and even half the paid ones for root users are available from the dev for free -- ROM Manager has a free version, Bootstrapper is available free from Koush (I can provide the link if you so wish). :)

    What in particular are you worried about? Maybe we can allay your fears.
