Where to start??
Hi, I am very new here. Just got my new HTC One M8 and its my first android phone. I have always been on the apple side with a jailbroken device. I've been doing some research about how customization features of the like of jailbreaking on the iPhone work on android. I'm excited to jump in but have no idea where to start. Help? Should I start with launchers? Should I root my device and install a custom ROM? can you run a specific launcher with any custom ROM? How bout themes and different icons? are they usually packaged together like on iOS? Thanks! Any help would be awesome!

Welcome to AC and Android
Android has more customization options out of the box than iOS does with Jailbreak. You don't need root access to install third party launchers or icon packs.
My personal favorite is Nova launcher and I'm using the Moonshine Icon pack. It's $1(The pack. Nova is free), but you can find plenty that are free.

There are plenty of stock android ROMs out there. To get a feel of how it would be, I would suggest using a launcher like Nova Launcher to see if you would like it.“Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.” - Neil deGrasse Tyson
