Can someone make a list that shows how to flash and not flash?

Locked Bootloader with Root:Custom Kernels, Mods, Custom Roms, Custom Kernels, Stock Kernel?

Unlocked Bootloader with Root: .................

This way we have an easy way to know what to do and what not to do.

If you feels this is an unnecessary thread, just ignore it and let it die.

I don't feel they are specific enough.
I feel they are missing out on explaining some parts.

Theoretically Yes, but in the main time you think you can do anything and you can flash something what really brick your phone, so I will be careful anyway.

Yes, you can flash Stock, Custom kernel like you like and any Stock, Custom Rom.

BUT I will not recommend to flash anything what it was not made for your model. So if the kernel is made for C6943 I will not flash it on C6903. Respect the compatibility.
