Default [Q] First time rooting problems

Hey guys, new to the forums and to the Android family. First off I want to say that I have done a fair share of research before asking these questions. Granted they are *WARNING* Noob Questions!

I have a S4 (Sprint), I successfully rooted and then continued on with GooManger. I hit the menu button and the tried to "Install OpenScript Recovery", it went to the website and counted from 10-1. No download occurred. So then I went to the PlayStore to download "TWRP", I tried to use the backup and recovery function and when I tried to do a backup it would fail. I tested the root and it is active, so not sure where to go from here.

What are the next steps I must take to backup my stock ROM and continue on to loading new ROM's.

PS: I used TitaniumBackup to backup all my current apps and system data.

My goal is to be able to use different ROM's but it is my first time and do not want to ruin my phone. Any help would be awesome! Thanks for your time and sorry for the noob heavy questions!
