Question [Q] 4.4.2 Note 2 Rom porting

I was just wondering if it was at all possible to port a rom from the note 2 to the gs3 because last I herd they are basically the same phones, ones just bigger. The reason why is because they have a lot of 4.4.2 touchwiz based roms that I sure would like to run on my galaxy. Now if this is possible would it be easy and wise to use a tool such as the Rom-porting tool found somewhere on these forums? Any and all advice is appreciated and I hope i'm not way off base here. Thanks!

OK, yeah that makes sense. But is it still possible, even if it's not in the way I described?

nothing impossible but porting rom like TW from different device need a hard work and maybe patch the kernel that we cant as locked bootloader.
you can try by replace /app /framework /priv-app worst case is bootloop use port guides iam not a good porter.
