Boot & recovery cannot be changed on a locked phone without a Moto signed process, like the OTA update or firmware restore.
So no way.

Can I even safe strap stock based roms? Do the ROM slots still not work would I have to overwrite the system? I'm pretty much just looking for some way to be able to send texts without having to switch to GSM only away from Global/LTE. (I'm using this phone on T-Mobile.

Maybe you still need STK slot. Just back up your STK first.
There is a X 444 ss ROM. Also the Russian SS Method in General

being funny, i thought i could flash a stock based rom. and it worked. phone booted and everything. responded well....for all of about 3 minutes, and things quickly fell apart to the point it wouldn't even boot properly.
