Default [Q] Setting Up On T-Mobile

So I'm looking into getting a Verizon S4 to use on T-Mobile because it's a lot cheaper. First, does all the T-Mobile bands work on the S4, like HSPA and LTE?

Second, how and in what order would I go about doing these? Basically, I want to
1. Use the phone on T-Mobile
2. Root
3. Install SafeStrap
4. Flash ChaosROM

What version, baseband, modem, etc. do I want to do all of this?

I don't have time to go over everything. But yes it can be done. I did it yesterday on my friends S4 and put Hyperdrive 17.1 on it and it has LTE and everything. You need to search for T-Mobile's APN. Otherwise follow instructions for the VZW one to root/ROM/etc.
