Hello,

First of all DON'T use toolkits to root your device... Do it manually. It's just a few basic commands + you will get a basic knowledge about adb/fastboot.

Now, since you're stuck on PAC ROM bootanimation (are you sure?) , I'm assuming that you've already flashed a custom recovery...
Head over to the custom recovery, wipe data/factory reset, wipe cache,dalvic cache and then flash the Pac rom zip file and then the gapps.zip and finally reboot.

Usb debugging only works in android so if you can't boot into android the setting is useless

Boot into bootloader and flash whatever properly. Don't use toolkits.

He is correct, regardless of thanks or posts. As I've already said, its an android setting
