Thanks for supplying more information, now I have a better idea of how to help.
You should use the update-binary for your device, not the one ported,
All editing of the updater-script will need to be done in UNIX format, not windows as EOL differs, if your using windows be sure to use notepad++ and set it up properly,
I use 7zip normally not winrar but it shouldn't matter, you need to have compression set to store,
It has been years since I have tried to make a ROM in this fashion but I don't think much would have changed, the point your at now is to get it to flash (not get the ROM to work) this means you need to fix the status 7 error, which will be done by fixing your updater-script
If you want, post a copy of the meta-inf folder for your device and the one you are porting from an I can help further

Take a meta-inf for your device and replace the updater-script from the other one and swap it. Then you'll more than likely need to edit it to flash on yours

Well you can't do this, you need to have the update-binary for your device specifically and you need to edit the updater-script to work with yours as well.
So keep meta-inf specific for your device, and only swap updater-scripts, then you need to edit this updater-script to match the partitions of yours as well as make sure there aren't any get_props that conflict.
I highly suggest reading up on updater-scripts so you understand the changes that need to be made

@demkantor has guided you very well.
U should take advantage of it.

I repeat once again.
get the update-binary from any other ROM specifically made for your device.
Then modify the existing updater-script.
Make sure Mount points are correct.

That's it.

USE NOTEPAD++ else surely if you would get status error.

Good luck
