Also will I be able to receive ota updates from google then? If I perform nandroid backup, does that backup my stock htc rom or not? Kind of noob at this, only device I really meddled with was nook hd+.
you will be using stock google camera, not htcs. but you will have htc photo edit app.
you will get updates from google if you convert to gpe.
if you backup when you get phone it will be stock, but if you convert it will wipe all data and you need a certain procedure to go back to sense. please read before converting
edit. that rom you linked is good if you dont wanna convert. no google updates though

if you are new to htc, please read the guides. i see too many "brick" issues that are preventable
