    Custom ROMs, Recovery and Root confusion

    Hi! I'm new here and I need help, I'm a newbie.

    I want to install Jellybean on my Xoom (Stock ICS 4.0.4, GSM, MZ605) since non-US Xoom users weren't as lucky as the US ones and we're stuck with ICS...
    I got REALLY confused!

    1-I know it sounds a little stupid but, do I need Root to flash Custom ROMs on the Xoom? I searched everywhere but I couldn't find an answer... Some say Yes, others say No...

    2-I can't decide between EOS and Cyanogenmod... Which one is better? Any other suggestions?

    3-Are all custom recoveries the same or do I need specific ones for specific ROMs?

    4-What about GAPPs? Do I need specific packages for specific ROMs?

    5-Overclocking the tablet has too much impact on performance?

    Sorry if it's stupid, It's the first time I'm doing it...
