Default [Q] Is it possible to port a Sony ROM for our beloved Moto G?

Hi all, I bought the Moto G last month to replace my old Xperia U.
It was a great choice, but I was used to Sony's Timescape UI and, IMO, it's the best OEM overlay of the Android world, I really love it.
Now, I saw that they're trying to port Sense 6 from the HTC One Mini 2, which has almost the same chipset as our Moto G.
My question is, is it possible to port a Sony ROM as well, maybe from the Xperia M2, which has the exact same SOC (Snapdragon 400 MSM8226) as our Moto G?
See the screenshot below, from Wikipedia
Thanks to anyone who will enlighten me on this, because I'm very curious about this

There was some sort of ported Xperia Z Rom or smth like that for the Moto G, search the forums.
Mental issues lead to the use of long signatures

Care much for receiving Thanks?Bitching at the others about it doesn't help, instead better stfu and gtfo.

If you're talking about the Xperia ZG2 ROM, that was just a themed CM11 man..

That's probably the closest one you'll ever see.A direct ROM port will be nearly impossible to port since they might have the same chipset, but there is a loads and loads of different hardware and drivers for them + patches and so on.
