Hello there, im on N9005 stock rooted 4.3 Rom...I wanna upgrade to 4.4 custom stock rom...

Im confused right now...Can i just download any stock based custom rom ( like : sweetrom ) and just flash it in CWM recovery?

And do the root stays? Or i need to do another different way?

You will have to flash a 4.4 rom first ( official or leaked doesn't matter ) because you need to update your bootloader to run 4.4. No root won't stay so you will have to re-root and install custom recovery too. Also, you can't go back to 4.3 once you update to 4.4.

Official is a single file you put in AP/PDA so it's easier and less confusing which files goes where.

Download THIS - put your device into download mode, unrar the .zip load the file into PDA slot and hit start.

It's the single Official Polish ROM


EDIT @hey_joe beat me to it
