That might be the goo manager, but I'm not all that familiar with that.

To get CWM, use EZ-Recovery (found in the Play store). From there you can flash 6.0.1.0 from the menu or whatever recovery you want.

That guide has a walkthrough for just about everything that's available to be flashed right now, i'd rely on that.

I have tried to download the recovery program and all the licks i have come across are dead.

Can someone please give me a hand? I feel like I have started all over and have no clue what is going on here

The link in somerandomguy1's post is exactly where i started. Start with root using Odin, which is basically a flashing utility. Then unlock the bl, search the play store for ez-unlock (one click bl unlock tool, its pretty self explanatory once you open it). Then search play for ez-recovery which you can use to flash cwm or team win's recovery (i use cwm) then flash the rom/gapps as usual. These are all the as-basic-as-it-gets way of doing these things, if you want to do all manually search the regular development thread for each process.

Kexec was/is used to bypass bootloader lockdown on a number of devices to allow flashing custom roms and kernels. If i remember correctly it would hijack the boot sequence after the first stage bootloader before the stock kernel was loaded into memory in order to allow the custom one to take its place and then proceed booting the rom. Since the bootloader is now unlocked, this process is obsolete as we can load our custom software without the need of exploiting the security checks locked bl's impose, and the right parts of the device can be programmed directly.

All of this information is throughout the vsgs3 development forums. The xda search function up to the right and google are your friends, and friends like attention

Yeah just make sure to use cwm 6.0.1.0 as it has kexec support built in. Cwm 6.0.1.1 might support it but im not sure

What did I do wrong?
I downloaded this ROM on my phone and then tried to flash it through Recovery and now my phone will not turn on. Did I do something incorrectly?

What does your phone do when you try to turn it on? Also what recovery did you use? This is still a kexec ROM so needs the kexec enabled recovery.

The only time it will try to turn on is if i pull the battery and put it back in. Then it will bring up the Galaxy s3 screen and then go black. I was using CWM recovery version 6

Can you boot back into recovery to flash a nandroid if you made one?

And just to clarify cwm 6.0.1.0?
