If you flashed wrong custom ROM via recovery won't be a problem, just reflash any other compatible stock ROM then your problem will be fixed. BUT if you flashed wrong stock ROM via ODIN and you will end up brick. You need a JTAG to revive your phone.
Primary Gadget:
OnePlus One A0001 16GB White | Cyanogenmod 11 Nightly 4.4.4 ROM | PhilZ Touch Recovery 6 (CWM 6.0.4.9 Based)



Secondary Gadget:
Samsung Galaxy W Wonder GT-I8150 White | Cyanogenmod 11 Unofficial 4.4.4 ROM by arco68 | PhilZ Touch Recovery 6 (CWM 6.0.4.5 Based)

Its pretty hard to destroy your phone completely just by flashing another rom.

Flashing bootloader through recovery is a bad idea.
Repartitioning your device in odin, with files not specific to your device, is a bad idea
Dramatic over-clocking with increased voltages, can be a bad idea
Dropping your device is a bad idea.
Bumping a thread without waiting more than 24 hours, is a bad idea
If you haven't read prepare to be ignored, or worse.
