I have a nexus 4, which unlocked and rooted standard android on it.

I have backed up my apps with titanium and backed up the rom via TWRP.

My question is if I change to a different rom using ROM Toolbox, will I be easily able to restore my apps from the phone or do I need the backed up elsewhere, does all the phone content get wiped?

Related to the above can i restore my existing rom, easily if I want to go back to it?

You do not need to wipe (format) your internal SD card so all your data will still be there (songs, pictures, apps on which you have performed backup on via titanium etc).
You should be able to restore your apps with titanium but sometimes there are apps that cause some problems.
And sure, you can go back to your nandroid backup (your old rom) at any time with TWRP.

Thanks for the advice.

So if I use rom toolbox, I just download and install a rom as zip, but do not wipe anything, is that correct?
