Yes they are all mixed in together, no carrier specific. That threw me off too.

Well you are looking in the right direction! Glad you found the model number as it is the Melius.
You are correct to say meliusltexx
is for you as you have Sprint w/ LTE. The other is for 3G only. As you will see, Philz only got as far as v6.48.4.
You also have TWRP Open Recovery available to you as well. This I have seen gone to v220.127.116.11.
Both recoveries worked great for me. I preferred Philz Touch though but to each their own. As far as ROMs, you are on your own. You can use roms from other carriers/variants but they will most likely break your cell signal. Unless there is a universal rom which you can use then you are stuck trying to mod or implement your own stuff as I had done before. I wish I could have stuck with the Mega as I did love that Phone but I only had it to play around with and never activated it. I loved modding things on it though.
You can always try porting a rom over to your phone from another Mega on a different carrier as long as you grab the right files from yours and place them into the other roms flashable zip you wish to port and then flash it in recovery. Here is a link to what I am talking about.
I never tried it on the Mega I had so I do not know if it will work for you but it can be possible to do so. Just make sure you make a backup of your current working rom for when it doesn't work to go back to. Also for info the Mega is unbrickable with an unbrick image. Just need to create one yourself and keep it somewhere safe incase you ever need it. Here
is the thread where I helped out a member with one of my images. I also provided useful info on how to create an image or other images with other links as well. I hope you find it useful. Don't be scared to try things out. If you can, get a cheap used phone like a S3 or something similar to play with so you are not out of a working phone. As long as you have recovery available to you, you can always go back.
GL and have fun. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me or post on here. I'll try to respond as quick as I can.
