Default Easiest tutorial to install a custom rom?

A step by step break it down for a major noob tutorial on installing a custom ROM ON KFHD 8.9(the one with the front facing camera only)
I've got root and KFFA, and for have succesfully managed to brick and unbrick my kindle 3 times .
I don't mind AMAZON OS, but my google play has been getting a connection error and my main apps have all been crashing.
So i decided to install a custom rom, but it's not been going very well at all.
The tutorials all lead to me bricking not sure if i'm a fool or if they're unclear or a mixture of the two.
Nothing else to say? maybe some help over skype or teamviewer or something?

Also I still get the no connection [retry] in Google play even though I am running cm11. If you get it, get the app hosts editor (if you don't get this app then you can just delete the hosts file but you will have to restart) and delete/toggle the host android.clients.google.com mtalk.google.com and Google play will connect (this works when you have fire os too).
