Relatively safe. As long as you don't break the bootloader/recovery, you can still go back to stock. But always do backups.

If I stucked on a boot loop, wiping data will move me ahead? Because I cant perform nandroid on this recovery..

You should choose a recovery with the option to do a nandroid. nothing more important than that!
but otherwise wiping and flashing should be sufficient ... hopefully

If the device gets stuffed up on a bad flash, and if you factory wipe it. It won't work, unless you have a nandroid backup to restore. Sometimes it works but from my experience, if I install a .zip which causes me to go into a bootloop and if I wipe data it doesn't fix anything.

You should make a backup, that way you are prepared for the worst.
