be sure to search the rooting method for your device.

I have already rooted it but I dont think I can underclock it without a custom rom.

You should not flash a rom of other device rom in your device even if it has same Chipset
It will hard/soft brick your device depends on kernel/bootloader included in rom
Only flash roms of your device
Search in your device forum to get roms

You can underclock using a CPU governor or init.d script
