you have some reading to do.
pick a rom that you want, flash it
2.2 and 2.3 will come with android recovery 3e. to get around signature verification error, you need to replace the recovery as you indicated
if you are flashing from 2.1/2.2 to 2.3 (excluding CM7 and MIUI) you will be required to flash bootloaders first before you can flash the 2.3 rom
aside from going from 2.1/2.2 to 2.3, there is no reason to flash bootloaders....
if you stick with 2.2 roms, as long as you take care of the 3e recovery, you use CWM....always
if you go to 2.3 roms, flash the bootloaders ONE TIME, then you can flash as often as you want,
