Default [Q] Do i need TWRP to flash SplitView.zip ?

Do i need TWRP recovery to flash SplitView ported from LG Flex or i can simply flash it via stock recovery? If i install TWRP recovery, can i go back COMPLETELY later to the stock?

You can't flash any zips without custom recovery, so yes you need to flash twrp. Also to get back stock it should be as easy as flashing a kdz file

You should be fine by just flashing twrp, no need for backup
