Default [Q] Delete unwanted apps from custom rom

First post... So, hello XDA

This has probably been asked many times in heaps of forums, but I can't find the answer I want; so here it is.

I would like to delete bloat-ware and other unwanted non-system apps from custom roms before I flash them.

1. Can I just extract the rom zip, delete the unwanted apps then zip it back up with 7Zip once finished?

2. Can I add apps that I do want, say apps that I have backed up with titanium or S5 ported apps that I use. If so is there a procedure or way of doing this. Or can they just be placed in their respective folders.

Sorry if these questions have been asked before.

Thank you in advance.

no need to extract, just open with 7zip or winrar, delete whatever u want, then just close it

I did that with Note1, should work also with Note3, just drag your added apps to their respective folders
