Download official rom from:
Code:
http://samsung-updates.com/device/?id=GT-P5100
or
Code:
http://www.sammobile.com/firmwares/?
and flash it by Odin program.
Personaly I think Android without root is *** Generally Tab2 have horrible lags and should bee boost by custom modifications...
I recommend you use new custom roms with KK 4.4.2

Easiest way is to just flash a custom recovery with Odin and installing a custom Rom.

No. Sammobile is for official (Samsung) builds. One can use Odin without root. Sammobile even gives the steps to get it done. Achieving root grants you access to ALL files (system and otherwise) so one can flash custom ROM's and other mods. Of course, having that kind of access means you can brick your Tab as well. I really suggest reading as much as you can about root and custom ROM's before you do such a thing. Knowledge is power when it comes to the root game.
