Question Which CWM and ROM should I choose?

First sorry for my english
I will do my best

I would like to customise my S4 Mini
But some questions before beginning

Which CWM shoul I install?
CWM Recovery 6.XXX or [CWM Advanced Edition] PhilZ Touch

Next step, what is the différence between OFFICIAL ROM and UNOFFICIAL ROM?
[ROM][4.4.4][I9195/I9190][OFFICIAL] LiquidSmooth v3.2 - Nightly:0808
[ROM][GT-I9195/9190] [UNOFFICIAL] [AOSP][KK] [20140623] **C-RoM** - v7.1 : 4.4.4

Which one will be better and why?

And perhaps last : How can I save all my data and apps before installing a Custom ROM?
And how can I restore them without any pb

Thanks and Tchusss

If you use PhilZ touch you'll have a touch UI in your recovery in the other version you have to use hardware buttons to navigate. Unofficial means that the Rom isn't buil from the original devs of the Rom but from someone else who ported it to our device and official means the Rom is built by the original devs of the Rom.

I'd use PhilZ Touch personally, there are a few more options with it, you can easily navigate and there's a file manager you can use from there as well (think it's called Aroma from the top of my head, could be wrong). The differences of official and unofficial have been said already, but which is better is completely dependant on what you're looking for in a custom ROM.
