Am sorry if this appears to be a noob, or even silly, question.
I have been trying some custom ROMs (all based on 4.2), and somehow, the camera app isnt working perfectly/smoothly on the ROMs with which I am otherwise completely happy with.
So, I was just wondering if its possible to to have an installable camera app from the stock ICS ROM??

What you mean "perfectly/smoothly"?
Have you tried camera ics from play store?

Camera app FCs once every 10-12 times I open the app. When "working", only the still camera and video recorder modes work. Selecting he Panorama mode or the other mode (sorry I know/cant remember the name) FCs the app and gives me a "Gallery FC" error message.

If you're using ROM with LiteKernel, the problem of FC-ing when open camera app is inside the kernel, not app. Especially if your whole phone sometimes becomes laggy and crashes when you open camera app.
I'm using Camera FV-5 (it's great), so, can't help with your question, but try stock kernel at first: link and see if the issue persists.
The latest google camera from play store isn't supported, so stick to default CM one or some other alternative.
