There are infinite posts regarding how to install a custom rom. Firstly you have to root ur phone then install a custom recovery like cwm or twrp and then you have to flash a new rom. system recovery can be used to install recovery like cwm. google it.
Hit the Thanks button if I helped.

You don`t have to have root before flashing a rom as most custom roms are prerooted allready, you just need a custom recovery

Oops.. My bad. I thought the device is to be rooted for custom recovery to be installed.
