    Get Xposed framework by installing the Xposed installer. Then you can install modules from the xposed installer to customize the UI.

    You can get custom ROMs at xda developers or the website for a specific ROM like Cyanogenmod.

    You'll need TWRP custom recovery in order to install ROMs. Download the ROM and Gapps (Google apps) files on a PC, then transfer the files to phone and flash ROM and Gapps in TWRP.

    Btw, it's a good idea to make a backup in TWRP before flashing a ROM. This will allow you to go back to stock software if ROM doesn't install properly.

    Wakelock detector, greenify, and Gsam battery monitor w/ root app will help maximize battery life.

    You can easily change icons in Nova launcher.

    If the ROM or Xposed Framework dosen't do that, pretty sure they might, then you'll have to get some images and put them in yourself. I think.

    Now when my carrier sends out an update (4.4.3 rumoured) do I take it. What happens if I take it?

    The OTA update won't install if you have custom recovery. You can disable the OTA notification using ROM Toolbox.

    Ya, ROM Toolbox is one of my favorite apps. Use it almost every day to manage files and apps, tweak performance settings, and change the boot animation.

    ROM development is somewhat limited for the Moto X, but there are a few that look nice and have useful features. OSE, Cyanogenmod, SlimKat and PAC-man are pretty good. The best is probably PAC. It has a ton of UI and performance settings since it's a combination of three ROMs (Paranoid Android, AOKP, and Cyanogenmod).

    Nightly builds are released by the end of each night. They haven't been fully tested and might have some bugs. Some work without any issues, but I try to flash release candidate or stable builds.

    So when I install the pac- ROM and gapps do I do it the same time? Or do i just install the ROM?

    Install the ROM and matching Gapps at the same time. Custom recovery will give you the option to flash several zip files. It's also a good idea to wipe davlik, cache, and data before flashing.

    Yes, but if you do a factory reset from TWRP (different than factory data reset in stock recovery) it will delete app data, contacts, and texts. Pics, vids, and music won't gets deleted.
