Default Root

Can I flash twrp in place of the stock recovery and obtain root like that? Then I could unlock the boot loader using a method other than HTC dev posted here in xda Then I could s off .

No you need unlocked boot loader and custom recovery to obtain Root..if you have a Verizon device or so you could try weaksauce temp Root method but it doesn't work with international device....
