SO I guess am under the impression that I have to flash ROMs onto my phone wiht something like CWM, TWRP, or Safestrap. Can I just use ODIN when I want to flash my rom?

Don't think you can flash roms with ODIN just stock builds that are generally in tar format to start.

Find your build version and study up on threads in General on things like SafeStrap and All things MK2. You are probably post MDL build and can't flash aosp roms, custom recoveries, custom kernels. You will need to use SafeStrap to flash TW based roms. Do a lot of research before doing anything and make backups, keeping a duplicate on PC. The only recovery you can use is the one with SafeStrap.
