Since you now have HBOOT 1.16.0000, then you will have to use the Downgrade tool.

Default Bricked I guess.

I have the boot loader unlocked successfully and also that I have the HBOOT version 2.00.00
I did as you said and now it's just stuck. won't boot into cyanogen mod. Although the clockwordmod was installed successfuly cus I can see it.
Help me out.

previously, I mentioned, my HBOOT version is 2.00.000 and I successfuly installed clockword mod as well as unlocked the bootloader.
Now, when I tried installing cm7, it said successful and when I tried booting into it, it just shows the htc boot up screen and that's it. Now when I tried restoring the previously made backup, it shows the same thing. The 'htc' screen and that's it. What do I do?
is it bricked?

No it is not bricked. When you try to flash a custom ROM with HBOOT 1.16/2.00 you need to manually extract the boot.img file from within the Rom's zip file and flash it manually in FASTBOOT USB mode.

Search the forum for the procedure.

Didn't you do a nandroid backup in CWM before you flashed CM7?

If not, there is a stock, rooted version of the Android 2.3.5/Sense 3.0 RUU in the Dev section that you flash from CWM.

I want to do this but don't want to lose the data on my phone. Is there anyway to backup EVERYTHING before doing this and losing everything?

No not everything. Your best bet is either Titanuim Backup or MyBackup.
