Hello, my device is currently running LeeDroid's ROM and I was looking to test out other ROMs for fun. One example is TrickDroid. I noticed that each thread provides a boot.img to be flashed in fastboot. Must I do that before flashing each ROM and after backing up and wiping? Thank you!

If both ROMs are on the same base then no, you shouldnt have to flash each time..

Newer bases require newer boot.imgs,

The worst thing that could happen is the ROM wont boot, To fix that, Just flash the boot.img

If you get a bootlop, you should erase the cache or just flash the boot.img as said above
