I wasn't sure if metamorphs are specific to ROMs or versions of Android. Are there any Gingerbread metamorphs that support a rooted G2X with the stock ROM? Thanks!

Metamorphs are not rom specific exactly, but they are not universally compatible either.

It's kind of hard to explain, but the apks a metamorph modifies are basically just zipped up directories. Sometime the directory names vary just slightly from rom to rom, sometimes the file names do.

Most of the time, a metamorph requires very minor adjustments in order to be compatible with a rom it wasn't "designed" for even if it's a completely different version of android. If it isn't completely compatible, it will still often patch some apks giving a somewhat "half-themed" phone.

Metamorphs also rarely do anything too invasive and therefore won't hurt anything, other than making your apks larger in size. However, this doesn't mean in any way that you shouldn't make a full backup before attempting anything.
