Default Backporting Android L to Nexus 7 2012?

Ive searched far and wide and havent seen anything on this yet. I know how to port on similiar os's, but heard the Android L is different.
So my questions are these:
Besides making sure proper files are pulled, the build prop lines changed and the norm for doing porting, what else should I be paying attention to and what else should be included?
Will I be able to use the N5 modded kernel or will i have to remod or should I mod existing N7 2012 kernel?
If i can port this, will i be able to run this through MultiROM?
Will i have to mod/patch apps to work with ROM or do I have to develop/get developed aps?

Sorry for the questions, I just haven't seen too much technical info yet.
