Default [Q] Baseband downgrade

currently running a 4.4 based purity rom.
while flashing miui v5 and older 4.3 based custom roms, was unable to get wifi, blue tooth and sound working.
understand this is a problem due to the radio/ baseband and i need to have a 4.2/4.3 baseband for this to work without problem.
is it possible to directly flash only the .84 baseband image in 4.4 via twrp?
if suppose i face problems after downgrading the baseband, can i upgrade back to the original radio/baseband by directly flashing only the newer baseband?
or would i need to go all the way back to install 4.3 factory image to get the .84 radio?

thanks in advance for your help.

Flash what you want in recovery and be done. There is no special process to do this.

Yes you can go ahead flash .84 image. If you encounter any problem; flashing back 4.4 baseband will fix the problem. You can flash back and forth with no problem.
