If I follow the root process and then flash a custom ROM, will I automatically unlock the bootloader? I want to keep this locked with the camera issues ive heard about


As wassaid above, the only way to unlock the bootloader is via the official Sony method, you cannot do it by accident

Beside LB vs UB. There's no different

O wow, there is a world of difference!!!!
With unlocked bootloaders you can flash custom kernels and bring all that a custom kernel can bring you. True custom roms (Not stock based ones) but CM/AOSP etc as well as the possibility of OC/UC/UV, there is a whole host of advatages to custom kernels. Just take a look at any custom kernel thread in the original development section. None of that can be done on locked bootloaders
