if you backed up your TA partition then you can restore that to relock after you flash a stock kernel,

if you backup using cwm or twrp with a unlocked bootloader it can brick your device if you restore (no idea why) it also does the same with other LBL restoring to a device with LBL

you can restore a twrp backup in CWM but some modifacations needs to be made to the files, so in short not realy unless you know what your doing

deodexing literly means the removal of odex files in your system (odex files ~ pre-compiled parts of an app)
by deodexing your making the app run from the source
(also when you open an app it compiles)

and about restore twrp backup with cwm .. we can say that i can't restore cuz i don't know what do to

about deodex .. i know the meaning of deodex .. but i heard that we can't use the stock kernel to a stock deodexed rom ?!!

that doesnt seem right
deodex does not have anything to do with kernels

you can restore a lbl backup to a ubl device

ive done before, i bricked when i restored lbl to lbl and ubl to lbl

make sense? if not ask!!
