    Okay so I'm going to root my phone again after un-rooting it. Anyways the question....Do I need to wipe/restore/erase everything on my phone every time I want to flash a new rom?

    To ensure a good flash it is highly recommended, so yes.

    Oh ok
    Wipe cache,data,dalvik cache, factory reset and wipe battery stats is what I always do
    And always make a backup before you flash any rom
