No, only flash the new recovery, and then the rom that you want, follow the installation instructions of each rom.

@carmos Fine so I don't need to be rooted at all ?

Does flashing SuperSU give root access ?

Thanks

@carmos I always thought that to install a custom recovery & custom rom you needed to be rooted in the first place. If I'm correct when you flash a rom, if it comes with supersu - then you are pre rooted, as you said above.

Whereas some roms require you to flash supersu alongside the rom you want - and this will therefore root your device.

Thanks for clarification.
