well iv never done it and dont see why you would so iv no idea if it would work

you could just take the system folder from the rom - turn it into system.img using a programme that can make img files and then replace the system.img in the pda file of a stock firmware

who knows if it will work and as ever you are responsibile if you brick your device

Flashable zips for Odin? I don't think so...
I knew about flashable zips for recovery and .tar / .tar.md5 files for Odin. But the method you are asking about hasn't been tried, isn't the recommended one and will probably brick your device. To fix it, you must use Odin with the proper method, using the .tar and/or the .tar.md5 files.
