You use Odin.

It'll completely wipe everything, it's a factory stock image.

Do you happen to have another download link other than the one from Samsung? It is VERY slow. ETA on 4.4 is 9 hours!

EDIT - Never mind. There is this new thing called GOOGLE that, when you type in the right words, you can find other downloads!

No, a lollipop rom simply won't boot from a 4.3 bootloader, there's no way to simply bypass it.

The phone will boot, hit the aboot checkpoint, it'll see the lollipop rom loaded, and it'll abort the boot sequence.
