To answer your question no, a custom ROM will not unlock your phone automatically. Rom's affect UI(User Interface) and not carrier specific alteration's. The alteration's you would need to swap carriers affects CID, IMEI... I dunno, something in that area.
On another note, I would do a bit more research if I were you. To my knowledge you cannot unlock GSM for the United States, which means straighttalk is out of the question. The xt912 is locked to CDMA in this region, Verizon's CDMA, so you cannot even use it with Sprint. The only alternative carrier I know of that you can use the xt912 on is Pageplus. You would need a xt910 to operate on GSM in the United States
