If you ask 5 people about this you will get at least 10 opinions...
I choose not to vote on that part of your question.
I have never done this before and I have quite a bit of trepidation about the whole process
The most important point is to select the right recovery version for your bootloader/ROM. As you are going to install a 4.2 ROM, I suggest TWRP 184.108.40.206-42. Not the latest, but proven and stable. Make sure to pick the -42 version matching your bootloader. The next point is: don't use the wipe data option on the bootloader screen, but use the wipe options in recovery instead.
If you follow these two points, you avoid most of the issues that get reported over and over again.
