The only other firmware you can flash is the Xperia m duel firmware, you go to do any other Xperia firmware you will brick the device possibly to the point of it just being a paperweight so no you can't flash just any other firmware

Also please post questions in the correct section not in general!

Depends on how bricked it is, if connecting phone to pc through usb with volume down button and the led lights flash then you should be able to reflash a stock firmware using flashtools

You won't nescressly brick ur phone, FlashTool won't let u flash another frimware, i tried to flash a sony xperia z friware but flashtool cancelled the flashing.

They'll charge you as its not covered under warranty but you can try to repair using flashtools by flashing stock
