Default Help with china Note 2

Hello everyone.

I just received a phone from a relative in china. It is a Note 2 GT-N7100 version. I am new to modding phones with roms and know nothing about rooting and such. I only want to install this phone back to my local canadian roms (Rogers or telus). Also, this china phone doesnt have any google apps, not even play store. So I want to install the phone back to north american version and get rid of all those chinese apps that comes pre-installed. thanks
