You can do that.
But I offer you to flash cf-auto-root and rott your device then flash your rom from cwm.
Notic: cwm will be install with cf-root

kernel is not equal rooting or recovery.

read the guides & howtos to know what is the difference. anything explained there.

a good start is cf-auto-root to root your phone, after that continue reading.

CWM will only be installed if CF-Root 6.4 is used, not with CF-Auto-Root (which is more secure regardign SDS)

I have read somewhere that by flashing a 4.3 rom can cause efs issues. So is it better if i flash a sammy 4.3 rom with odin? And then I can flash a rooting kerenel and a recovery right??

it is correct that it can come to problems when upgrading from 4.1.2 to 4.3 because Samsung introduced some changes that also effect EFS (e.g search for EFS v2). There are a few threads already that mention how to upgrade the best way, hence I would propose you to search them as I did not upgrade to a Samsung based 4.3 rom due to the fact that I am using SlimBean (AOSP based). Therefore I do not want to recommend you things that might be wrong.
