    2. What ROM should i start off with?
    3. How do i get the gingerbread ROM?
    4. Is there a test i should put my phone through to see if everything works?

    1. you should have a superuser app in the drawer. you can also download titanium backup in the market and once u start, it'll tell u if ur not rooted. also, try going into recovery and see if u have clockwork or amon.
    2. check out the xda forums. start off with the stable roms (CM 6.1.2, Myn's Warm, Mikfroyo). Always do NAND backup before flashing and don't forget to wipe.
    3. i wouldn't play around w/ gingerbread yet till you get accustomed to flashing roms due to instability issues.
    4. only way is to actually use the phone and try everything out

    XDA is better to get your ROMS from. Rom Manager hasn't been wiping and people have been having terrible issues after flashing that way.

    XDA has them. Download the zip of whatever rom and then put it on your sd card. Boot your phone into recovery. Do a nand backup. Then wipe cache, data and dalvick cache. Then flash your rom from sd card.

    You need a recovery. Doesn't matter if it is clockwork recovery or amon RA recovery. I prefer amon.

    You can use rom manager to flash both amon or clockworkmod (just scroll to the bottom of the first menu).

    No. Just make sure you wipe them after your nandroid backup. Then flash the rom.

    CM6 at first glance looks plain and lacks sense. This is because it's based on AOSP and rebuilt from the ground up. If you're looking for performance, then it's CM6. No crapware or anything. If you really want some eye candy then check out MIUI. It's also AOSP based. That's my current rom right now. If you miss sense, then check out Myn's RLS5 or Mikfroyo. Those are the fastest sense roms IMO. I suggest you keep reading because further down the line, ur gonna have to start flashing kernels, radios, and updated recovery.
