    Ok

    So far I have:

    Rooted
    Installed Droid 2 Bootstrapper Recovery
    I went into the recovery menu and did a Full Backup
    In titanium Pro I backed up All user apps & system data

    I plan on trying a rom since this will be the first time I wanted to know how to get back to my phones current state.

    I'm curious on steps I need to take in order to go back to my original Rom? and apps. Basically a perfect copy before I changed.

    Also for example can I go from Gummyjar to say Cyanogenmod?

    install a new rom:
    download rom
    boot into bootstrap
    wipe data & cache
    install from zip
    reboot
    install titanium from market and proceed to restore apps

    Back to original (if you dont like what you installed):
    boot into bootstrap
    wipe data & cache
    restore (still in bootstrap) and choose the backup file you made

    and yes u can go between roms all you want but you need to wipe data and cache when switching roms; otherwise, itll cause issues
